Children run and shout with glee
Children run, and shout with glee, Alleluia!
It is Nicholas they see, Alleluia!
Bearing gifts, the love he brings, Alleluia!
Saint of Christmas, now we sing, Alleluia!
Blessed patron saint and friend, Alleluia!
Sailors, children you befriend, Alleluia!
Hear the songs, the church bells ring, Alleluia!
Thank you for the joy you bring, Alleluia!
