Here is the song lyric of Michael McDonald : and you can also sing and watch music video
Here are two versions I have found at websites
Children, go where I send thee Children, go where I send thee
How shall I send thee? How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee one by one I'm gonna send thee two by two
One for the little bitty baby Two for Paul and Silas
That was born, born Born in Bethlehem. One for the little bitty baby
That was born, born Born in Bethlehem
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...
Eleven for the eleven deriders...
Twelve for the twelve Apostles.
