Para dar luz inmortal
siendo esposo de María.

R.: Sois José, el claro día,
en pureza angélica.

Ave sois Ángel trocado
por vuestra inocente vida,
estando vuestra alma unida
al autor de lo criado
siendo de Dios tan amado
inmenso es vuestro caudal.

Sois Arcángel ilustrado
en los misterios de Dios
siendo el deposito vos
de lo Verbo encarnado
no es mucho si a vuestro lado
tenéis Sol, Sol inmortal .

Sois trono pues a Dios Niño
vuestros brazos recibieron
y en dulce abrazo se unieron
con tiernísimo cariño
gozad José del armiño
d’esta flor celestial.
Pureza tan virginal
dice en un Ave Maria.

Giving light immortal,
being the husband of Mary.

Refrain: Thou art Joseph, the clear day,
in angelic purity.

Thou art become an angel
by thine innocent life,
for thy soul is united
to the author of the Servant,
being so beloved of God.
Immense is thy fortune.


Thou art an Archangel enlightened
in the mysteries of God,
being the respository
of the incarnate Word.
It is but little if, at thy side,
thou hast the Sun, the Sun immortal.


Thou are a throne since the Christ Child
thine arms have received,
and in sweet embraced they joined
with fondness most tender.
Enjoy then, Joseph, the ermine
of this celestial flower.


Purity so virginal
saith in an Ave Maria:
