Holy Patron! Thee Saluting 22
* * * Rev. P. J. Nicholas
 

1.Holy Patron! thee slauting here we meet with hearts sincere;
Blest Saint Joseph, all uniting, Call on thee to hear our prayer.
Chorus:
Happy Saint, in bliss adoring, Jesus, Saviour of mankind,
Hear thy children the imploring, May we thy protection find.
2.Worldly dangers for them fearing, Youthful hearts to thee we bring;
Guide in virture persevering, Vice may ne'er thier bos-om sting.
Happy Saint, in bliss adoring &c.
3.Thou who faithfully attended, Him, whom heaven and earth adore
Who with pious care defended Mary Vrigin ever pure.
Happy Saint, in bliss adoring &c.
4.May our fervent prayers ascending, Move thee for our souls to plead;
And thy smile of peace descending, Benedictions on us shed.
Happy Saint, in bliss adoring &c.
5.Thro' this lise, O Watch around us, Fill with love our every breath,
And when parting fear surrounds us, Guide us through the toils of death.
Happy Saint, in bliss adoring &c.
