Lyrics

1. Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?
I’m a gonna send thee
One by one, one for the little bitty baby
Was born, born, born in Bethlehem

2. Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?
I’m a gonna send thee
Two by two, two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Was born, born, born in Bethlehem

3. Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?
I’m a gonna send thee
Three by three, three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Was born, born, born in Bethlehem

4. Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?
I’m a gonna send thee
Four by four, four for the four that stood at the door
Three by three, three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Was born, born, born in Bethlehem

5. Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?
I’m a gonna send thee
Five by five, five for the gospel preachers
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three by three, three for the Hebrew children
And two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Was born, born, born in Bethlehem

6. Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?
I’m a gonna send thee
Six by six, six for the six who couldn’t be fixed
Five for the gospel preachers
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Was born, born, born in Bethlehem

7.  … Seven by seven, seven for the seven that never got to heaven…

8. … Eight by eight, eight for the eight who stood at the gate…

9. … Nine by nine, nine for the nine who saw the sign…

10. …Ten by ten, ten for the ten commandments…

11.  … Eleven for the eleven deriders…

12.  … Twelve for the twelve Apostles…

Was born, born, born in Bethlehem
Was born, born, born in Bethlehem
