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.
