​Children Go Where I Send Thee

This song is by Neil Diamond and appears on the album Acoustic Christmas (2016).

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 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 was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee three by three
Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty
Baby was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee 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 was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee five by five
Five for the gospel preachers
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 was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee six by six
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the gospel preachers
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 was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee seven by seven
Seven for the seven that never got to heaven
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the gospel preachers
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 was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee eight by eight
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate
Seven for the seven that never got to heaven
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the gospel preachers
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 was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee nine by nine
Nine for the nine all dressed so fine
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate
Seven for the seven that never got to heaven
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the gospel preachers
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 was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee ten by ten
Ten for the ten commandments
Nine for the nine all dressed so fine
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate
Seven for the seven that never got to heaven
Six for the six that never got fixed
Five for the gospel preachers
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 was born, born, born in Bethlehem
Yes, he was born
Yes, he was born, born in Bethlehem
Yes, he was born, born in Bethlehem.
