Saint Nicholas the children’s friend
Joyful sing we
His miracles a blessing send
Joyful sing we
All the people shout with glee
Now the blessed saint to see
May we all right merry be
Happy Day, Holy Day
Celebrate with gladness
The sailors, captives, all are free
Joyful sing we
The daughters three new life now see
Joyful sing we
All the people shout with glee
Now the blessed saint to see
May we all right merry be
Happy Day, Holy Day
Celebrate with gladness
He comes with gifts beyond compare
Joyful sing we
He tells us of God’s love and care
Joyful sing we
All the people shout with glee
Now the blessed saint to see
May we all right merry be
Happy Day, Holy Day
Celebrate with gladness
