I Saw Three Ships

A lavish production that brings the sounds of viking ships, angelic choirs, and other musically appropriate, if somewhat unusual, instrumentation into this under-appreciated traditional piece.

lyrics

Hmm Hmm
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

Hmm Hmm
And who was in those ships all three
On Christmas day on Christmas day
And who was in those ships all three
On Christmas day in the morning

Hmm Hmm
Young Mary had her son on board
On Christmas day on Christmas day
Young Mary holding Christ the lord
On Christmas day in the morning

Hmm Hmm
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

Hmm Hmm
Oh sailed they into Bethlehem
On Christmas day on Christmas day
Oh sailed they into Bethlehem
On Christmas day in the morning

Hmm Hmm
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

Hmm Hmm
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

Hmm Hmm
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

Hmm Hmm
Then let us all rejoice amen
On Christmas day on Christmas day
Then let us all rejoice amen
On Christmas day in the morning

Hmm Hmm Hmm
