The carpenter stood with quiet concentration

As The Child ran about

With your wife calling unto you

With the comfort of a shout

Your hands indeed they toil much

As you place the boards

In precise positions with measurement

So was your work for the Lord

Oh Joseph thou wast chosen

For the merciful story

Brought to witness the Son of God

By the Father’s benevolent glory

While the sweat poured forth from your brow

Jesus of Nazareth grew to a man

Preaching the Gospel for humanity

You understood He was the great I AM

On the longest days your praise was met

With subtle teachings of deed

The Fatherhood from the Lord to Jesus

Was reflected in your miraculous creed

The Blessed Virgin she came

And nurtured your Precious Son

Proclaiming the grandeur of God

And professing love under the Sun

When the night therefore came

 You sought to gain rest

Awaiting the known future

Of the King Most Blessed
