1. Hymne à Saint Nicolas te Lorraine [sung text checked 1 time]

Tanta quae virtus tua, Nicolae,
Transtulit nomen geminos ad axes?
Sol tuos surgens videt, occidensque
  Semper honores.

Summa laus Patri, tibi summa Nate,
Cujus aeternum bene Nicolaus
Vindicat numen tibi, par, 
  Superni nexus amoris.

Note: the first stanza matches a standard Hymn found in Officia propria dioecesis Sancti-Deodati

Et pro nobis Christum exora.

 [Canticum graduum.]
  De profundis clamavi ad te, Domine;

  in vocem deprecationis meæ.
3 [Si iniquitates observaveris,
  Domine, Domine, quis sustinebit?

5 Speravit [anima mea in Domino]2.
6 [A custodia matutina usque ad noctem,
  speret Israël in Domino.]1

  et copiosa apud eum redemptio.
8 [Et ipse redimet Israël 
  ex omnibus iniquitatibus ejus]1. 3
