As I sat on a sunny bank

Representative Text

1 As I sat on a sunny bank,
On Christmas Day in the morning,
I spied three ships come sailing by,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

2 And who should be with those three ships
But Joseph and his fair lady!
O he did whistle, and she did sing,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

3 And all the bells on earth did ring,
On Christmas Day in the morning,
For joy that our Saviour he was born
On Christmas Day in the morning.
