Holy patron, thee saluting

Representative Text

1 Holy patron, thee saluting
Here we meet, with hearts sincere;
Blest Saint Joseph, all uniting,
Call on thee to hear our prayer.

Refrain:
Happy saint, in bliss adoring
Jesus, Savior of humankind,
Hear thy children thee imploring,
May we thy protection find.

2 Thou who faithfully attended
Him whom heav'n and earth adore;
Who with pious care defended
Mary, Virgin ever pure. [Refrain]

3 May our fervent pray'rs ascending,
Move thee for our souls to plead;
May thy smile of peace descending,
Benedictions on us shed. [Refrain]

4 Through this life, O watch around us!
Fill with love our ev'ry breath,
And, when parting fear surrounds us,
Guide us through the toils of death. [Refrain]
