St. Nicholas Song

This simple song in the Waldorf tradition is especially nice to sing with pre-schoolers and other young children. It is intended to be sung simply, without accompaniment.

Nicholas, St. Nicholas,
come to us today,
Ride upon your white horse
from far, far away.
Bring us golden treasure,
Fill our hearts with love,
Ready for the Christ Child
coming from above.
Nicholas, St. Nicholas,
come to us today,
Ride upon your white horse
from far, far away.
