Hymn of the Day

Today is the commemoration of St. Joseph, Guardian of Jesus, and there happens to be a verse for this occasion in the hymn, “By All Your Saints in Warfare.” It’s also a great verse for parents to take instruction from!

By all Your saints in warfare,
For all Your saints at rest,
Your holy name, O Jesus,
Forevermore be blest!
For You have won the battle
That they might wear the crown;
And now they shine in glory
Reflected from Your throne.

We sing our thanks for Joseph,
The guardian of our Lord,
Who faithfully taught Jesus
Through craft and deed and word.
Grant wisdom, Lord, and patience
To parents ev’rywhere
Who guide and teach the children
Entrusted to their care. 

Then let us praise the Father
And worship God the Son
And sing to God the Spirit,
Eternal Three in One,
Till all the ransomed number
Fall down before the throne,
Ascribing pow’r and glory
And praise to God alone. Lutheran Service Book #517, verses 1, 14, and 3
