An Orthodox Hymn for St. Nicholas:

"O who loves Ni-cho-las the Saintly,
O who loves Nio-cho-las the Saintly.
Him will Nicholas receive,
and give help ini time of need.
Ni-cho-las, Ni-cho-las.

O who dwells in God's holy mansions;
Is our help on the land and oceans.
He will guard us from all ills,
keep us pure and free from sins,
Ni-cho-las, Ni-cho-las.

Ni-cho-las, tearfully we sinners,
Beseech you fervently in our prayers.
Help us in our tribulations,
comfort ev'ry Christian nation.
Ni-cho-las, Ni-cho-las.

Holy Saint, listen to our prayers.
Let not life lead us to despair;
All our efforts aren't in vain,
singing praises to your name;
Ni-cho-las, Ni-cho-las."

Orthodox Christianity is about communion with God and, by His grace, growth in holiness. Our primary means of growth in this spiritual process is through our participation in the Sunday worship called the Divine Liturgy.
