"Children Go Where I Send Thee" as written by and Marc/mc Donald Harris....
Little children go where I send thee
How should I send thee
I'm gonna send you one by one
One for the little bitty baby
Born of the virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How should I send thee
I'm gonna send you two by two
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Born of the virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How will I send thee
I'm gonna send you three by three
Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Born of the virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How should I send thee
I'm gonna send you four by four
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Born oft he virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

Oh, go where I send thee
How should I send thee
I'm gonna send you five by five
Five for the gospel preacher
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Born oft he virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How should I send thee
I'm gonna send you six by six
Six for the six that couldn't get fixed
Five for the gospel preacher
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Born of the virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children go where I send thee
How will I send thee
I'm gonna send you seven by seven
Seven for the seven that couldn't get to heaven
Six for the six that couldn't get fixed
Five for the gospel preacher
Four for the four that stood at the door
Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Born oft he virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem
