O holy saint Nicholas / The enlightener of Japan, / You share a dignity and the throne of the Apostles; / You are a wise and faithful servant of Christ, / A temple chosen by the Divine Spirit, / A vessel overflowing with the love of Christ. / O hierarch equal to the Apostles, / Pray to the Life-Creating Trinity / For all your flock and for the whole world.
