St Nicolas


One small bag of gold

Through a window it flew

Into a stocking

Hung to dry

A dowry paid


Sailors lost out at sea

Caught in raging storms

An apparition

Of flesh and bone

 Would guide them home


 Oh, St. Nicholas, you lived and your life 

will teach us how to truly love

Oh St. Nicholas, you're a mystery

A saint, a man for all humanity

Like the tiny babe we celebrate


Snow is falling now

A late December Scene

Heavy branches

Christmas lights

That dance on the trees


It's another year

With all that living brings

My heart is full

With priceless gifts

For you joy and peace


 Oh, St. Nicholas, you lived and your life 

will teach us how to truly love

Oh St. Nicholas, you're a mystery

A saint, a man for all humanity


Oh St. Nicholas, you gave in secret

so that no one else would see

Oh St. Nicholas you're a mystery

Admired, misunderstood

Like the babe

of Bethlehem

The Christ child

We celebrate
