“Saint Nicholas”
Artist: Jack Pachuta
St Nicholas Center Collection
All that love Saint Nicholas
All that serve Saint Nicholas
For these Saint Nicholas
Comes to their aid in all their needs
Saint Nicholas! Saint Nicholas!
All that come to him
All those on land and sea
He protects from disasters
He keeps them from falling into sin
Saint Nicholas! Saint Nicholas!
All that come to him
Asking for aid in their needs
He will protect from evil
He will save their soul and body
Saint Nicholas! Saint Nicholas!
His image is our salvation
And the one protection from evil
Don’t allow us to needlessly perish or
Fall into the hands of our enemies
Saint Nicholas! Saint Nicholas!
