Ancient Prayer to Saint Joseph

Joseph

 

O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great,

so strong, so prompt before the throne of God,

I place in thee all my interests and desires.

O St. Joseph, do assist me by thy powerful

intercession and obtain from thy Divine Son

all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ,

Our Lord; so that having engaged here below

thy Heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving

 and homage to the most loving of Fathers.

O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating thee

and Jesus asleep in thine arms. I dare not

approach while He reposes near thy heart.

Press Him in my name and kiss His fine

head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss

when I draw my dying breath.                                             

 Saint Joseph,  Patron of departing souls,

pray for me
