Lyrics

As I sat under a sycamore tree
A sycamore tree, a sycamore tree
I looked me out upon the sea
On Christ’s Sunday at morn

I saw three ships a-sailing there
A-sailing there, a sailing there
Jesus Mary and Joseph they bare
On Christ’s Sunday at morn

Joseph did whistle and Mary did sing
Mary did sing, Mary did sing
And all the bells on earth did ring
For joy our lord was born

O they sailed in to Bethlehem
To Bethlehem, to Bethlehem
St Michael was the steersman
St John sat in the horn

And all the bells on earth did ring
On earth did ring, on earth did ring
‘Welcome be thou Heaven’s King
On Christ’s Sunday at morn’
