The New St. Basil Hymnal 170, "Great Saint Joseph, Son of David"

"Great Saint Joseph, son of David,
Foster-father of our Lord,
Spouse of Mary, ever virgin,
Keeping o'er them watch and ward:
In the stable thou didst guard them
With a father's loving care;
Thou by God's command didst save them
From the cruel Herod's snare.

Three long days, in grief, in anguish,
With that mother sweet and mild,
Mary, Virgin, didst thou wander,
Seeking her beloved Child.
In the temple thou didst find Him:
Oh, what joy then filled thy heart!
In thy sorrows, in thy gladness,
Grant us, Joseph, to have part.

Clasped in Jesus' arms and Mary's,
When death gently came at last,
Thy pure spirit, sweetly sighing,
From its earthly dwelling passed.
Dear Saint Joseph, by that passing
May our death be like to thine,
And with Jesus, Mary, Joseph,
May our souls forever shine."

I originally found this in a prayer book entitled "Favorite prayers to St. Joseph" it is a purple book. Then I just searched online for it, and I got the same lyrics. When I heard them (the monks, I assume) singing this after the Litany of St. Joseph, they sound that they are saying different words. The lyrics starts the same but is different afterward. I guess they may have changed the lyrics. Anyways, Enjoy it.

God Bless
