O sancte praesul Nicolae,
quis non per te Deum mirabilem sanctis suis dixerit,
qui singulari tua pietate et sanctimonia
virginibus pudicitiam, nautis et oppressis salutem conservasti.

Gaude praesul optime,
qui virtutem operum Dei populo annuntiare meruisti,
tuis precibus nobis veniam petentibus digneris impetrare.
