Assembling, O ye who love the feasts of the Church, / let us hymn the adornment of hierarchs, / the glory of the fathers, / the well-spring of miracles / and great defender of the faithful, saying: / Rejoice, O protector of Myra, / honored primate and steadfast pillar of its Church! / Rejoice, O most radiant beacon, / illumining the ends of the earth with wonders! / Rejoice, divine joy of the sorrowful / and fervent intercessor for the oppressed! / And now, O blessed Nicholas, / cease not to entreat Christ God / in behalf of them that honor thine ever-gladsome and most illustrious memory // with faith and love.
