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

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

Children go where I send thee
Children, how shall I send thee?

I'm gonna send thee four by four
Four by four that stood at the door
Three by the Hebrew children
Two by Paul and Silas
One by the little 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 by the five it couldn't get by
Four by the four that stood at the door
Three by the Hebrew children
Two by Paul and Silas
One by 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 six by six
Six by the six that couldn't get fixed
Five by the five couldn't get by
Four by the four that stood at the door
Three by the Hebrew children
Two by Paul and Silas
One by the little bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Six by the six, couldn't get fixed
Five by the five that couldn't get by
Four by the four that stood at the door
Three by the three for the Hebrew children
Two by two for Paul and Silas
One by the little bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem

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