JOSEPH BEING AN AGED MAN.
Joseph being an aged man truly, He married a Virgin fair and free, A purer Virgin could no man see
Than he chose for his wife and dearest dear.
The Virgin was pure there was no nay, The Angel Gabriel to her did say, Thou shalt conceive a Child this day, The which shall be our dearest dear.
The Angel no sooner this message said But all in heart she was afraid ; How may this be, and I a pure maid ? Say then to me, my dearest dear.
The Holy Ghost, Mary, shall come unto thee, The power of it shall overshadow thee, And thou shalt bear a Son truly,
The which shall be our dearest dear.
Joseph being a perfect mild man, Perceiving that Mary with child was gone, Said, Tell to me, Mary, and do not frown, Who hath done this, my dearest dear ?
