GLORIOUS FATHER, DEAR SAINT JOSEPH

Glorious Father, dear Saint Joseph,
Throng we round thy shrine to-day;
For the sake of Jesus take us
Neath thy guardianship for aye.
Once like us He called thee Father,
Teacher, helper, guard and guide;
Once like us He sought for safety
At His Father Joseph's side.

CHORUS.

Then as round thy shrine we gather,
Consecrating every heart,
Take us for thy children, Father,
And thy blessing fond impart.

Herod sought the Child to slay Him,
But through thee He safety found;
Still the demon seeks the children,
Thou wilt still His arts confound.
Keep us pure as thine own lily
In baptismal blood-bought grace;
If we fall, dear Father, help us
By our tears sin to efface.

Take us, then, beloved Father,
Thine own children e'er to be;
Neath thy blessed eyes here daily
We will do our tasks for thee.
Lessons, prayer, or play we ll give thee,
Each in its allotted time,
"All for Jesus, Mary, Joseph!"
Make of each an act sublime!
