|Lyrics:||Oh come all you sailor men |
Row your boats in
For the seas they are icy
The shore calls you in
And come all you fisher men
Lay you nets down
The lights and warmth beckon
Gaudete! Shouts the town
All around this old harbour
The voices resound
Words of peace and good will
Go to all who are found
The feast will be royal
The company sound
Though the waves are a-lapping
You walk on home ground
The choir sings aloud
Open arms will surround
What more could we ask for
At this time of year?
For the Yule tide is here.
