Sancte, Sancte Nicolas,
Tute patronus noster es:
Laus et Deo Gloria:
Sancte, pro nobis exora.

Mortuos qui pueros
Vivicasti, Nicolas:
Laus et Deo Gloria:
Vitam pro nobis exora.

Pauperes et puellas
Qui dotavisti, Nicolas:
Laus et Deo Gloria:
Nobis virtutem exora.

Nautas in periculo
Qui servavisti, Nicolas:
Laus et Deo Gloria:
Nobis salutem exora.

Tibi, Pater, Tibi, Fili
Et Tibi, Sancte Spiritus,
Nunc et semper gloria,
Ut erat in principio.
