1. Joseph stirpis Davidicae,
Sponse almae theoticae,
Adesto nostris precibus,
Quas tibi pie fundimus.

2. Tu gloriose gloriose bajule,
Monarche caeli caeli curiae,
Ut digne demus cantica, N
ostra disrumpe crimina.

3. O custos matris Domini,
Devotos tuo nomini
Joseph alme per aspera
Salva semper et prospera.

4. Adesse tuis famulis
Dignare, dux amabilis,
Sentiant nostra pectora
Tua semper juvamina.

5. O faber beatissime.
Succure benignissime
Nosque supplices respice,
Vota servorum suscipe.

6. Praesta, pater ingenite,
Jesu cum sancto flamine,
Ut Joseph almi precibus
Jungamur in caelestibus.
