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

The Virgin Mary and Christ were there,
On Christmas Day, on
Christmas Day;
The Virgin Mary and Christ were there,
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.

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

Then let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day, on
Christmas Day;
Then let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day in the
morning.
