Joseph Dearest, Joseph Mine

The Faith We Sing Number 2099
Text: Trad. German
Music: Trad. German; harm. by Ralph Vaughn Williams
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:
Jesus, Jesus,
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.
