Joseph Dearest Joseph Mine lyrics:

"Joseph, dearest Joseph mine
Help me cradle the child divine
God reward thee and all that's thine
In paradise."
So prays the mother Mary.

He came among us at Christmastide
At Christmastide, in Bethlehem
Men shall bring Him from far and wide
Love's diadem: Jesus, Jesus
Lo, He comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us!

"Gladly, dear one, lady mine
Help I cradle this child of thine
God's own light on us both shall shine
In paradise."
As prays the mother Mary.

He came among us at Christmastide
At Christmastide, in Bethlehem
Men shall bring Him from far and wide
Love's diadem: Jesus, Jesus
Lo, He comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us!

Peace to all that have goodwill!
God, who heaven and earth doth fill
Comes to turn us away from ill
And lies so still
Within the crib of Mary.

He came among us at Christmastide
At Christmastide, in Bethlehem
Men shall bring Him from far and wide
Love's diadem: Jesus, Jesus
Lo, He comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us!

All shall come and bow the knee
Wise and happy their souls shall be
Loving such a divinity
As all may see
In Jesus, Son of Mary.

He came among us at Christmastide
At Christmastide, in Bethlehem
Men shall bring Him from far and wide
Love's diadem: Jesus, Jesus
Lo, He comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us!

Now is born Emmanuel
Prophesied once by Ezekiel
Promised Mary by Gabriel
Ah, who can tell
Thy praises, Son of Mary.

He came among us at Christmastide
At Christmastide, in Bethlehem
Men shall bring Him from far and wide
Love's diadem: Jesus, Jesus
Lo, He comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us!

Thou my lazy heart hast stirred
Thou, the Father's eternal Word
Greater than aught that ear has heard
Thou tiny bird of love
Thou Son of Mary.

He came among us at Christmastide
At Christmastide, in Bethlehem
Men shall bring Him from far and wide
Love's diadem: Jesus, Jesus
Lo, He comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us!

Sweet and lovely little one
Thou princely, beautiful, God's own Son
Without thee all of us were undone
Our love is won
By thing, O Son of Mary.

He came among us at Christmastide
At Christmastide, in Bethlehem
Men shall bring Him from far and wide
Love's diadem: Jesus, Jesus
Lo, He comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us!

Little man, and God indeed
Little and poor, thou art all we need
We will follow where thou dost lead
And we will heed
Our brother, born of Mary.

He came among us at Christmastide
At Christmastide, in Bethlehem
Men shall bring Him from far and wide
Love's diadem: Jesus, Jesus
Lo, He comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us!
