St. Joseph Prayer Promises

Are the promises supposedly associated with the St. Joseph Prayer legitimate? (protection from drowning, burning, poison, and sudden death)

If the promises are not valid, where in the heck did they come from, and why are they so widely circulated?

I have heard of this prayer but do not know if the promises are legit. What are the words to the prayer?
