Footsteps of the Holy Family

Follow the Footsteps of the Holy Family

They will show the way

Through the desert with Faith, Hope, and Love,

Guided by an angel as they pray

 –

Treasured hearts of humility

Hold the map to our heavenly home

Beyond the golden gates

There the Creator waits

Upon his Majestical throne

 –

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph we love you

We give you our hearts and our souls.

 –

You showed us the path

To the Father’s House

Padre of the Poor,

He invites us in

 –

Through Eternity’s doors

Seraphim and Cherubim adore

The Blessed Trinity eternally,

Forever more.

 –

From Nazareth to Bethlehem,

Then to Egypt and back again –

Happy at home at their carpenter’s shop,

Their simple chores were performed

 –

Foster Father, Divine Son, worked as one

Repairing wood that was worn

Through these humble ones

Thy will was done

To this Madre Our Savior was born

 –

Jesu, Maria, e Jose we love you

Enlighten us, help us, save souls.

 –

You showed us the path

To the Father’s House

Padre of the Poor,

He invites us in

 –

Through Eternity’s doors

Seraphim and Cherubim adore

The Blessed Trinity eternally,

Forever more.

 –

On the road from Jerusalem,

They failed to find their beloved boy

Nearly three days had already passed

At last was their long-lost joy!

 –

After teaching the wise ones prayers,

He honored their homeward request –

Purity he will bless,

Modesty in our dress;

Ascend the celestial stairs…

 –

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph we love you

May we breathe out our souls in peace with you.
