Children, Go Where I Send Thee

Date September 5, 2008

Below are the lyrics from one of my favorite childhood songs. We loved listening to the Cathedral Quartet, especially on vacations through the mountains of Tennessee.

1. Children, go where I send thee
(Well, Lordy, then) Where will you send me?
I’m gonna send thee one by one
One was a little bitty baby
Born by the virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

2. Children, go where I send thee
(Well, Lordy, then) Where will you send me?
I’m gonna send thee two by two
Two was Paul and Silas
One was a little bitty baby
Born by the virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

3. Children, go where I send thee
(Well, Lordy, then) Where will you send me?
I’m gonna send thee three by three
Three was the Hebrew children
Two was Paul and Silas
One was a little bitty baby
Born by the virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

4. Children, go where I send thee
(Well, Lordy, then) Where will you send me?
I’m gonna send thee four by four
Four was the four that stood at the door
Three was the Hebrew children
Two was Paul and Silas
One was a little bitty baby
Born by the virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

4. Children, go where I send thee
(Well, Lordy, then) Where will you send me?
I’m gonna send thee five by five
Five was the Gospel preacher
Four was the four that stood at the door
Three was the Hebrew children
Two was Paul and Silas
One was a little bitty baby
Born by the virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

5. Children, go where I send thee
(Well, Lordy, then) Where will you send me?
I’m gonna send thee five by five
Five was the Gospel preacher
Four was the four that stood at the door
Three was the Hebrew children
Two was Paul and Silas
One was a little bitty baby
Born by the virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

6. Children, go where I send thee
(Well, Lordy, then) Where will you send me?
I’m gonna send thee six by six
Six was the six that couldn’t get fixed
Five was the Gospel preacher
Four was the four that stood at the door
Three was the Hebrew children
Two was Paul and Silas
One was a little bitty baby
Born by the virgin Mary
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

7. Children, go where I send thee
(Well, Lordy, then) Where will you send me?
I’m gonna send thee twelve by twelve
Twelve was the twelve disciples
Eleven was the gospel writers
Ten was the ten commandments
Nine was was the nine that wrestled fine
Eight was the eight that stood was the gate
Seven was the seven that came down from Heaven
Six was the six that couldn’t get fixed
Five was the Gospel preacher
Four was the four that stood at the door
Three was the Hebrew children
Two was Paul and Silas
One was a little bitty baby
Born by the virgin Mary
Wrapped in swaddling clothing
Laid down in a manger
Born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children Go Where I Send Thee (Fairfield Four)
Not exactly the Cathedral Quartet, but you get the sound.
