Children Go Where I Send Thee - Lyrics

Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

Well, I'm gonna send thee one by one
One for the itty, bitty baby

Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem
Said He was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

Hey, I'm gonna send thee two by two
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the itty, bitty baby

Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem
Said He was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

I'm gonna send thee three by three
Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the itty, bitty baby

Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem
Said He was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

I'm gonna send thee, four by four
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children

Two for Paul and Silas
One for the itty, bitty baby

Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

I'm gonna send thee, five by five
Five for the five that stayed alive
Four for the four that stood at the door

Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the itty, bitty baby

Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem
Said He was born, born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

I'm gonna send thee, six by six
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the five that stayed alive

Four for the four that stood at the door
Three, three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the itty, bitty baby

Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

Well, I'm gonna send thee, seven by seven
Seven for the seven who never got to heaven
Six for the six that never got fixed

Five for the five that stayed alive
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children

Two for Paul and Silas
And one for the itty, bitty baby

That was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

Well, I'm gonna send thee, eight by eight
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate
Seven for the seven that never got to heaven

Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the five that stayed alive
Four for the four that stood at the door

Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the itty, bitty baby

Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem
Said He was born, born, born, born in Bethlehem

Well, children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

I'm gonna send thee, nine by nine
Nine for the nine that dressed so fine
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate

Seven for the seven that never got to heaven
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the five that stayed alive

Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the itty, bitty baby

Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem
Said He was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Well, children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

Well, I'm gonna send thee, ten by ten
Ten for the ten commandments
Nine for the nine that dressed so fine

Eight for the eight that stood at the gate
Seven for the seven that never got to heaven
Six for the six that never got fixed

Five for the five that stayed alive
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children

Two for Paul and Silas
One for the itty, bitty baby

Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem
He was born, born, born, born in Bethlehem
