Joseph, Dearest, Joseph
(Joseph, Lieber Joseph)

Joseph, dearest, Joseph sweet,
Help me rock my child to sleep,
God o'er us His watch will keep
In paradise, so sings the mother Mary.

Gladly, Mary, dearest one,
I will rock your little son,
May the will of God be done,
His Kingdom come, Through blessed mother Mary.

Happy carols let us sing,
Happy for this precious thing:
Now is born our heavenly King
In human form, the child of lovely Mary.
