‘I Saw Three Ships’

Not much video to go with this–but just try and sit still: this hymn won’t let you do it. Another one of my favorite Christmas carols: I Saw Three Ships, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

How old is this carol. No one knows for sure. Old enough for the lyric to say, “sailing to Bethlehem.” You’d do better to get out and walk.
