Dear children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?
Oh, where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

I'm gonna send thee one by one
One was a little bitty baby
Born of the Virgin Mary

And He was born, born, born in Bethlehem
And He was born, born, born, born in Bethlehem

Now children go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?
Oh, where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

I'm gonna send thee two by two
Two is Paul and Silas
One is the little bitty baby
He was born of the Virgin Mary

And He was born, born, born in Bethlehem
He was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Come on children go where I send thee
How will I send thee?
Go where I send thee, ooh Lord
How shall I send thee?

I'm gonna send thee three by three
Three was the Hebrew children
Two was Paul and Silas
One is the little bitty baby
Born of the Virgin Mary

And He was born, born, born in Bethlehem
He was born, born, born in Bethlehem

I say, I say children go where I send thee
Tell me how you want me to send you?
Go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

I'm gonna send thee four by four
Well, I was the four that stood at the door
Three was the Hebrew children
Two was Paul and Silas

One is the little bitty baby
Born of the Virgin Mary

And He was born, born, born in Bethlehem
He was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Go, how you gonna go?
Go, where you gonna go?
Go, how you gonna go?
Go, where you gonna go?

Go, children go, go, go where I send thee
Children, go, go, go, go where I send thee

Go, how you gonna go?
Go, where you gonna go?

Go, how you gonna go?
Go, where you gonna go?
Go, how you gonna go?
Go, where you gonna go?

He was born, born, born in Bethlehem
And children, go, go where I send thee
