I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In

Lyrics

(Traditional English carol)

1. 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.

2. And what was in those ships all three…

3. Our Savior Christ and His lady…

4. Pray whither sailed those ships all three…

5. O they sailed into Bethlehem…

6. And all the bells on earth shall ring…

7. And all the angels in Heav’n shall sing…

8. And all the souls on Earth shall sing…
