HAIL, HOLY JOSEPH, HAIL


1 Hail, holy Joseph, hail!
Chaste spouse of Mary, hail!
Pure as the lily flower
In Eden's peaceful vale!
Hail, holy Joseph, hail!
You were God's chosen one:
To you the Word made flesh
Was subject as a Son.
2 Hail, holy Joseph, hail!
O friend of angels, hail!
Assist the hearts that faint
And guide the steps that fail.
Hail, holy Joseph, hail!
Pricne of the house of God,
May His best graces be
By your dear hands bestowed.
3 Hail, holy Joseph, hail!
Teach us our flesh to tame.
And, Mary, keep the hearts
That honor Joseph's name;
He loved you with a love
Of holy purity:
We pray that we may be
As pure in love as he.
