Hail Joseph, a prayer I found in a 19th Century prayer book “A Novena of Meditation In Honour of St. Joseph, According to the Method of Saint Ignatius”,1874.
A copy of this book is digitized and can be found at archive.org.
Hail Joseph, full of grace!
Jesus and Mary are with thee;
Blessed art thou amongst men,
And blessed is the fruit of thy chaste Spouse, Jesus.
Holy Joseph, nursing-father of Jesus,
And spouse of the blessed Virgin Mary,
Pray for us sinners now
And at the hour of our death.
