Michael Mcdonald – Children Go Where I Send Thee lyrics

(Traditional - Arranged By Mcdonald/Harris)

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 swaddling clothing
That 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
Three for the little bitty baby
Four for the hebrew children
Five for the gospel preachers
That 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
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
Nine for the nine all dressed so fine
Ten for the ten commandments
Eleven for the eleven riders
