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

[Repeat in descending order:]
Three for the Hebrew children...
Four for the four that stood at the door...
Five for the gospel preachers...
Six for the six that never got fixed...
Seven for the seven that never got to heaven...
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate...
