In Joseph’s house at Nazareth,
The sound of hammer fills the air,
As light of early dawn appears
To great the Holy Family there.

The world's own Maker, Christ himself,
Submits to thee as household head,
His brow with sweat of toil bedew’d,
He shares with thee hard labour’s bread.

Hymn for the Feast of St Joseph the Worker
