Kolping Song

2. A cobbler, going through the world,
With heart sincere and true.
He made new shoes, repaired them too.
Father Kolping, God bless you!

3. The priesthood was his heart's desire.
God granted him this grace.
See, what great work he set apace.
Father Kolping, God bless you!

4. A father to his journeymen,
He wished so much to be.
He took them for his family.
Father Kolping, God bless you!

5. Father Kolping, zealous priest of God,
be with your friends today.
And joining hands, we brothers pray,
And joining hands, we sisters pray:
Father Kolping, God bless you!
