Children, Go Where I Send Thee
This song is progressive, that is, it gets longer as you near the
end. It also involves an echo on the second line of each
verse. The leader sings the bold type and the audience the
italics while everyone sings the rest. To save time and typing
I'll show the first verse only and list the other nine in
order. Remember, you must add the last verse to the previous
one sand sing them all. Repeat the first two lines each time
Children, go where I send thee.
How shall I send thee?
Well, I'm gonna send you one by one,
one for the little bitty baby
Was born, born, born in Bethlehem.
Two for Paul and Silas
Three for the Hebrew children
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
