Wondrous story, saint in glory,
Blessed Nicholas, we sing
Of your mighty deeds and wonders,
To us all your lessons bring;
Ways of loving, ways of caring,
Let us shout with songs of joy:

Blessed Nicholas, Blessed Nicholas,
Patron saint of girls and boys.

Sailors safe now, three boys live now,
Daughters free from slavery;
Calm the sea, and seal our faith now,
That we faithful ever be;
Son returned home; pagan gods gone;
Holy myrrh your life reveals:

Blessed Nicholas, Blessed Nicholas,
Patron saint of girls and boys.

You prepare us to be mindful
Of the truth of Christmastide,
That our faith and works surrender
At the manger, to abide
There with Mary and Saint Joseph
All our hopes and dreams combine:

Blessed Nicholas, Blessed Nicholas,
Patron saint of girls and boys.
