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
