St. Nicholas Verse

Illustration from Santa Claus Comes to America by Singer & Baldridge, 1942
Upon his snow white steed
With wind and lightning speed
St. Nicholas leaves the sky
And comes a-riding by
The little hare hops nigh
And lifts his nose up high
The stag with pointing horn
Leaps over bush and thorn
And all the creatures dear
Are drawing quickly near
Before St. Nicholas bow
Their little heads so low
And we will learn a tune
Of sun and star and moon
And sing our happy lay
Sing on St. Nicholas Day!
—Traditional German
