Hymn Stanza for Saint Joseph, Guardian of Our Lord

The following was written to be sung for the Commemoration of Saint Joseph as a part of “By All Your Saints in Warfare” (King’s Lynn).

Our praise, O Lord, for Joseph,
Who heard the angel tell
That Mary bore his Savior
From death and sin and hell.
He scorned the shame of others
And raised You as his own,
Who reigns in heaven glorious,
The Father’s own true Son.
