1. Mother of mercy, peace, and love,
Thy child is God come from above.
As Christ thou lovest, we would too
In all we say or think or do.
2. Joseph the Guardian, brave and wise,
Nothing is hidden from thine eyes.
By dreams the Lord God guided thee.
So follow we with constancy.
3. Father of Jesus, God most high,
Thy love so great brought our Lord nigh.
Thy Son for us became a slave
To give himself the world to save.
4. Lord Jesus Christ, we worship thee.
By thy good Spirit set us free.
A child for us; Friend crucified.
Risen, thou standest by our side.
