Hail to you Joseph,
On whom divine grace has showered his gifts.
Christ the Saviour rested in your arms and grew under your eyes.
Blessed are you amongst all men, and blessed is Jesus, the divine Child whom your virginal wife gave you .
Saint Joseph, whom the Son of God received as Father,
until our last moments pray for us,
who are the prisoners of our problems – in our family, with our health and with our work-
and deign to be our succour at the hour of our death.
