Joe Offer Origins:Come from the land of Egypt/Mariner's Hymn (4) ADD:Come from the land of Egypt/Mariner's Hymn 24 Dec 20


Dick Holdstock made up some verses to make the song a little longer:

MARINERS HYMN Ewan Macoll added words from sunny bank and Dick Holdstock

Hail you and where did you come from Hallelujah
Hail you and where did you come from Hallelujah
Oh I am Come from the land of Egypt Hallelujah

Hail you and where are you bound for Hallelujah
Oh I am bound for the land of glory Hallelujah

Hail you and who do you carry Hallelujah
Oh Brother Joseph and Lady Mary Hallelujah

Hail you and what do they do now Hallelujah
Oh they do whistle and they do sing now Hallelujah

Hail you and what do they sing now Hallelujah
Oh joy for our savior for he is born Hallelujah

Hail you and where are they bound for Hallelujah
Oh I am bound for the land of Canaan Hallelujah


When Dick and Carol Holdstock sing this together, it's downright lovely.
