steps, and to be like thee, full of love for Jesus and Mary, and faithful to all our other duties.

Thou art too jealous of the glory of God and our salvation to refuse to receive our prayer. O beloved father, graciously hear us.

Prayer to St. Joseph.
(100 days.)

O GLORIOUS St. Joseph, father and protector of virgins, faithful guide, to whom God intrusted Jesus most Innocent, and Mary, Virgin of virgins, by this twofold deposit to thee so dear; make it thy care that I, preserved from every defilement, pure in heart and chaste, may serve with constancy Jesus and Mary, in perfect chastity. Amen.


(St. Joseph.)

HAIL, holy Joseph, hail;
Chaste spouse of Mary, hail;
Pure as the lily-flower

In Eden's peaceful vale.
Hail, holy Joseph, hail;

Father of Christ esteem'd; Father be thou to those

Thy Foster-Son redeem'd. Hail, holy Joseph, hail;

Prince of the House of God; May His best graces be

By thy sweet hands bestow'd.

Hail, holy Joseph, hail;
Belov'd of angels, hail;

Cheer thou the hearts that faint,
And guide the steps that fail.
Hail, holy Joseph, hail;

God's choice wert thou alone;
To thee the Word made flesh

Was subject as a Son.
Hail, holy Joseph, hail;

Teach us our flesh to tame;
And, Mary, keep the hearts

That love thy husband's name.
Mother of Jesus, bless,

And bless, ye Saints on high,
All meek and simple souls
That to St. Joseph cry.
