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?
The Virgin Mary and Christ were there.
Pray, whither sailed those ships all three?
O, they sailed in to Bethlehem.
And all the bells on earth shall ring.
And all the angels in heaven shall sing.
And all the souls on earth shall sing.
Then let us all rejoice, amen!
