I Saw Three Ships


The lyrics of this carol mention ships sailing into Bethlehem, but since the nearest body of water is about 20 miles away, there are varying interpretations of the symbolism – one being that the ships are actually the Magi’s camels (“ships of the desert”). The original 6/8 time signature gets a makeover here with this fun swing arrangement. Early intermediate level. 4 pages. Performance time: approximately 2:05. Included in the “Christmas Lites” songbook.
