St Nicholas, St Nicholas
You were a good and holy man
St Nicholas, St Nicholas
You lived your life to Jesus' plan
You followed Jesus all your days
You used your wealth to give him praise
St Nicholas, St Nicholas
We thank the Lord for Nicholas
St Nicholas, St Nicholas
The world remembers what you did
St Nicholas, St Nicholas
With women married, children fed
May we be generous like you
May we all follow Jesus, too
St Nicholas, St Nicholas
We thank the Lord for Nicholas

44 chapters to celebrate feasts and seasons: seasonal activities and sections for Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. Special days include All Saints, Remembrance, St Martin, St Cecilia, St Andrew, St Nicholas, Christingle, St Paul, and others, such as, Granny & Grandpa day, star gazing, Easter, Noah, open farm and much more. Each chapter has a key Bible verse, Bible links, identifies key focus and key group, with activity ideas, music if appropriate, prayer and further ideas to develop the theme. A very useful resource.
