The Sandy Banks

As I sat on the sandy banks,
The sandy banks, the sandy banks,
As I sat on the sandy banks
On Christmas Day in the morning.

I saw two ships come sailing along,
Sailing along, sailing along,
I saw two ships come sailing along
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Who could it be in those two ships,
Those two ships, those two ships,
Who could it be in those two ships
But Joseph and the Virgin Mary?

Joseph was praying and Mary was singing,
The bells of heaven they were ringing,
Joy of Jesus, he was born
On Christmas Day in the morning.


Noted from the parish of Llangennith by the Reverend J D Davies in A History Of West Gower, 1884.
