Bishop Saint Nicholas.
Bless you we pray,
for giving to everyone
on this great day,
This great day of sharing
and caring and love,
who just like the Magi
residing above,
Gave little Lord Jesus
gifts fragrant and gold,
you give to all people,
the young ones and old.
Bishop Saint Nicholas,
Bless you we pray.
for being so generous
on this great day
For teaching us all about
Jesus our Lord,
For letting us know
that we’re loved by our God.
Bishop Saint Nicholas,
Blessed Saint Nicholas,
all bless Saint Nick
On Saint Nicholas day.
Bishop Saint Nicholas,
Blessed Saint Nicholas,
all bless Saint Nick
On Saint Nicholas day.
