He snuck out in the nighttime.
He left gifts in the darkness.
He helped many, many people,
Because he loved God so much!

Who is this secret person?
Who is this mystery?
He's called St. Nicholas,
But he's also you and me!

So, good saint, please help us
To love and give to one another.
We know that is what God asks us,
So please help us, we pray!
