Description

SATB and flute. A traditional English carol set by Robert Weaver with flute on one stanza. Not the tune you know, but easily learned, very accessible, and extremely charming. Perfect for your Lessons and Carols service.

I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day in the morning.

And what was in those ships all three,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day?
And what was in those ships all three,
On Christmas Day in the morning?

The virgin mother and her baby,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
The virgin mother and her baby,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

He sat and smiléd on her knee,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
He sat and smiléd on her knee,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Pray whither sailed those ships all three,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day?
Pray whither sailed those ships all three,
On Christmas Day in the morning?

O they sailed into Bethlehem,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
O they sailed into Bethlehem,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

And all the bells on Earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
And all the bells on Earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

And all the angels in Heaven shall sing,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
And all the angels in Heaven shall sing,
On Christmas Day in the morning.
