WHISPER HIM MY NAME  - A prayer to St Joseph, Adapted by Ben Dunwell

PART I
Sancte loseph,
O loving Joseph, in your arms I see the Father’s only Son.
Whisper Him my name and kiss His head,
For I will come no closer while He sleeps,
But watch with you forever.

PART II
Whisper Him my name…
Pray for me, protect me,
Stay with me and hold me.
Whisper Him my name…
Pray for me, that I may do the will of God
This day and forever.
Sancte loseph,
So close before the throne of God,
I place in you my thanks
And prayers to the Father.

PART III
Here below in my last hour hear my prayer,
At the hour of my death.
Stay with me.
Stay with me in the hour of my death.
In your arms I see the Father’s only Son:
Sleeping Child,
Child of God.
Whisper Him my name
And kiss His head,
That He may give back my kiss,
And I may feel His kiss at the hour of my death.
