great the grace that was yours, Joseph,
every day every thing you did
done for Jesus and Mary;
great was your glory now
even a cup of water given in Jesus' name
not go unrewarded (Mt 10:42).
your powerful intercession, win for me the grace
everything I do this day
be done for God alone;
that I may serve Christ in serving others,
serve him, as did you,
union with Mary, the mother of Jesus.
