Round Our Skiff

Text: Traditional Hebrides

Music: 1984 Kathy Wonson Eddy

Kathy kindly sent me this song among many others a few years ago: she is a great source of liturgical choral music. I have sung it with our chorus and another smaller group, but Carol and I wanted to keep it in our repertoire, so here's a third way to sing it. Kathy lives in Randolph, Vermont.

 

Gordon viol

Carol - harp

 

Round our skiff's be God's aboutness

Ere she try the deeps of sea

 

Sea-shell frail for all her stoutness

Unless Thou her helmsman be

 

 

 

 

Round Our Skiff is recorded on the album Herrings in the Bay
