LYRICS

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?

Our saviour, Christ, and his lady,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;

Pray, whither sailed those ships all three?
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;

O they sailed into Bethlehem,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;

piano interlude

The bells will all begin to ring,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;

And all the Angels in Heaven shall sing,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;

And all the souls on earth shall sing,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;

Let us all rejoice amain,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
