Prayer to St. Joseph
O glorious St. Joseph,
You who have power to render
possible things that are for us impossible,
come to our aid in our present trouble and distress.
Take this important and difficult
affair under your particular protection,
that it may end happily.
O dear St. Joseph, all our confidence
is in you since you are so powerful
with Jesus and Mary.
Let it not be said that we would invoke you in vain.
O Angel of God my guardian dear,
To whom God's love commits me here,
Ever this day (night) be at my side,
To light & guard, to rule and guide.
Good night my Guardian Angel
The day has passed away.
Well spent or ill
Its actions are written down for aye.
And now of God's kind Providence
Thine image pure and bright
Watch over me while I'm sleeping
O Angel Dear, good night.
Good day my Guardian Angel
The night has passed and gone.
And thou hast watched beside me
Midnight as the dawn.
The day is now before me
And as it lies away,
Oh help me well to make it
A good and holy day.
