Prayer to St. Joseph

Did you wonder where he’d lead you?
Were you afraid of what the world might say?
I feel you understand my fears today
I feel you standing by my side
You taught the child to be a man
A man whose life my freedom won
Yours was the shoulder that he rested on
You have the Savoir in your arms
St Joseph pray for me that I may live my life with Jesus as you did
St Joseph pray for me that at the hour of my death He may hold me
St Joseph pray for me,
That I may follow where the Spirit leads me
Chaste husband of the Virgin wife
Wise guardian of the Bread of Life,
The One beheld the Son of God
St Joseph pray for me
The little hands that played with wood
The little boy who you called ’son”
You always knew he was the chosen one
Who’d one day hang upon a cross
joseph-may-1
Yet you lived to do the Father’s will
Fearlessly followed His commands
You were the loving and gentle man
He chose to guide his precious One
St Joseph pray for me that I may live my life with Jesus as you did
St Joseph pray for me that at the hour of my death He may hold me
St Joseph pray for me,
That I may follow where the Spirit leads me
Chaste husband of the Virgin wife
Wise guardian of the Bread of Life,
The One beheld the Son of God
St Joseph pray for me
