Tune: JOSEPH LIEBER, JOSEPH MEIN, Meter: 78.847 with Refrain
1. Joseph dearest, Joseph mine,
help me cradle the child divine;
God reward thee and all that's thine
in paradise, so prays the mother Mary.
He came among us at Christmastime,
at Christmastime, in Bethlehem;
let us bring him from far and wide Love's diadem:
lo, he comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us!
2. Gladly, dear one, lady mine,
help I cradle this child of thine;
God's own light on us both shall shine
in paradise, as prays the mother Mary.
3. All shall come and bow the knee;
wise and happy their souls shall be,
loving such a divinity,
as all may see in Jesus, Son of Mary.
