"Children Go Where I Send Thee"


Children, go where I send thee!
How shall I send thee?
 
 
1.

I'm gonna send thee one by one,
One for the little bitty Baby.
Wrapped in swaddling clothing,
Lying in the manger,

Born, born,
Born in Bethlehem.

 
       
Children, go where I send thee!
How shall I send thee?
 
 
2.
I'm gonna send thee two by two,
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty Baby.
Wrapped in swaddling clothing,
Lying in the manger,

Born, born,
Born in Bethlehem.
