Advent: Joseph the Carpenter

Advent-The Time Between

Carpenter of steel,
His life to God appealed;
The trusted one to carry

God’s Son within dear Mary
To fruition – incarnation;
While reviled by kin and friend,
Joseph did not bend

To fears of king nor travel,
To sexual temptation,
Instead bent into will of God,
Lived out his true vocation.

Joseph, good man of steel,
Tender, caring, wise,
Trained up the Son of God,
Blessed Mary at his side.
