Children Go Where I Send Thee - Lyrics

Children go where I send thee.
Oh Lordy, how will I send thee?

Oh, I'm gonna send thee one by one.
One for the little bitty baby.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children go where I send thee.
Oh Lordy, how will I send thee?

Oh, I'm gonna send thee two by two.
I'm gonna send thee two by two.
Two for Paul and Silas.
One for the little bitty baby.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children go where I send thee.
Oh Lordy, how will I send thee?

Oh, I'm gonna send thee three by three.
Three for the Hebrew children.
Two for Paul and Silas.
One for the little bitty baby.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children go where I send thee.
Oh Lordy, how will I send thee?

Oh, 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 little bitty baby.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children go where I send thee.
Oh Lordy, how will I send thee?

Oh, I'm gonna send thee five by five.
Five for the five that came back alive.
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.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children go where I send thee.
Oh Lordy, how will I send thee?

Oh, I'm gonna send thee six by six.
Six for the six that couldn't be fixed.
Five for the five that came back alive.
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.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children go where I send thee.
Oh Lordy, how will I send thee?

Oh, I'm gonna send thee seven by seven.
Seven for the seven that never went to Heaven.
Six for the six that couldn't be fixed.
Five for the five that came back alive.
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.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children go where I send thee.
Oh Lordy, how will I send thee?

Oh, I'm gonna send thee eight by eight.
Eight for the eight that waited at the gate.
Seven for the seven that never went to Heaven.
Six for the six that couldn't be fixed.
Five for the five that came back alive.
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.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children go where I send thee.
Oh Lordy, how will I send thee?

Oh, I'm gonna send thee nine by nine.
Nine for the nine that stood in the line.
Eight for the eight that waited at the gate.
Seven for the seven that never went to Heaven.
Six for the six that couldn't be fixed.
Five for the five that came back alive.
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.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children go where I send thee.
Oh Lordy, how will I send thee?

Oh, I'm gonna send thee ten by ten.
Ten for the Ten Commandments.
Nine for the nine that stood in the line.
Eight for the eight that waited at the gate.
Seven for the seven that never went to Heaven.
Six for the six that couldn't be fixed.
Five for the five that came back alive.
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.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children go where I send thee.
Oh Lordy, how will I send thee?

Oh, I'm gonna send thee eleven by eleven.
Eleven for the eleven deriders.
Ten for the Ten Commandments.
Nine for the nine that stood in the line.
Eight for the eight that waited at the gate.

One for the little bitty baby.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.
