The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Saint Nicholas - Patron of School Children

Words and Music: Traditional French Canadian



Saint Nicolas
Patron del e'coliers 
Apporteg - moi du sucre 
Tout plien mon petit pannier

J'irai a l'e'cole
J'apprendrai mes lecons
Je serai sage et doux  
Comme un petit mouton. 


Saint Nicolas
Patron of school children
When you come bring me candy
..... little bread (cookies)

I've been to school
I've learned my lessons

Come little lamb


A kind visitor to this site emailed the above lyrics, with this note:

"My grandfather was French Canadian and used to sing us this carol.  I have been looking for music on many sites, but have not seen this song anywhere.  Perhaps you would like to add it to your collection."
