English. Text by David Haas.

David Haas has taken this traditional English carol, changed it from triple to a rock-feel duple meter, and added original verses that expand on the metaphor of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph coming as three ships to dock on the shore of this world.
Features a consistent syncopated melodic pattern with accented quarter notes and a dottedrhythm bass line driving the piece.

C instrument and 14 (3 octaves) Handbells parts are optional.
