( From the album "A Very Happy Christmas" )

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
Wrapped in swadling clothing,
Lying in a manger.
He was 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.
Wrapped in swadling clothing,
And lying in a manger.
He was born, born
Born in Bethlehem.
Three for the Hebrew children...
Four for the four knockin' at my 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...
Nine for the nine all dressed so fine...
Ten for the ten commandments...
Eleven for the eleven deriders...
Twelve for the twelve Apostles...
