While living in Myra in the flesh, * thou wast myrrh in truth, as anointed with the sweet spiritual
myrrh, * O our Father Nicholas, august High Priest of Christ; * and with sweet myrrh dost thou
anoint * the faces of those who * ever keep with faith and love thine honored memory, * ending
their misfortunes and perils, * freeing them from every affliction, * by thine intercessions with the
Lord of all. – Hymn from Great Vespers for St. Nicholas.
