English:
O who loves Nicholas, the saintly, O who serves Nicholas,the saintly, Him will Nicholas receive, And give help in time of need, Nicholas, Nicholas.

Slavonic:
O kto, kto živet v jeho dvory Pomoščnik na zeml’i i mor’i. :Izmet jeho ot napasti Ne dast’ jemu v hr’ichi v pasti Nikolaj, Nikolaj.:

English:
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, Nicholas, Nicholas.
