O glorious St. Joseph,
to you God committed the care
of His only begotten Son
amid the many dangers of this world.
We come to you
We consecrate them to you today,
that through this consecration
they may become your foster children.
Guard them, guide their steps in life,
form their hearts after the hearts of Jesus and Mary.
who felt the tribulation and worry of a parent
when the child Jesus was lost,
protect our dear children for time and eternity.
Preserve them from the corruption of this world,
and give us the grace one day
to be united with them in heaven forever.
