Almighty God,
who in thy love
didst give to thy servant
Nicholas of Myra
a perpetual name for
deeds of kindness
on land and sea:
Grant, we pray thee,
that thy Church may
never cease to work
for the happiness of children,
the safety of sailors,
the relief of the poor,
and the help of those tossed
by tempests of doubt or grief;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who liveth and reigneth with thee
and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever.
