In Myra, O Saint,
you proved yourself a true priest of God
and servant of the divine mysteries.
Fulfilling the Gospel of Christ,
you gave your life for your flock
and saved the innocent from death.
In this way you achieved true holiness
as a great mystic of the Grace of God.
Text: St. Nicholas Kontakion
