I Saw Three Ships lyrics

by Orla Fallon

I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
Saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Pray, wither sailed those ships all three,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
Wither sailed those ships all three,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

O they sailed into Bethlehem,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
They sailed into Bethlehem,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

And all the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
All the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

[Instrumental]

And all the souls on earth shall sing,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
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;
Let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day in the morning

I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
Saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day in the morning.

On Christmas Day in the morning.
