Go Where I Send Thee
The Golden Gate Quartet Lyrics


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.
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 Alma and Amulek.
One for the little bitty baby.
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 tree in Lehi's dream.
Two for Alma and Amulek.
One for the little bitty baby.
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 Lord that stands at the door.
Three for the tree in Lehi's dream.
Two for Alma and Amulek.
One for the little bitty baby.
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 Alma who came back alive.
Four for the Lord that stands at the door.
Three for the tree in Lehi's dream.
Two for Alma and Amulek.
One for the little bitty baby.
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 books that we call sticks.
Five for Alma who came back alive.
Four for the Lord that stands at the door.
Three for the tree in Lehi's dream.
Two for Alma and Amulek.
One for the little bitty baby.
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 prayers we send up to Heaven.
Six for the books that we call sticks.
Five for Alma who came back alive.
Four for the Lord that stands at the door.
Three for the tree in Lehi's dream.
Two for Alma and Amulek.
One for the little bitty baby.
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 girl who just wouldn't wait.
Seven for the prayers we send up to Heaven.
Six for the books that we call sticks.
Five for Alma who came back alive.
Four for the Lord that stands at the door.
Three for the tree in Lehi's dream.
Two for Alma and Amulek.
One for the little bitty baby.
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 miles we ride our bikes.
Eight for the girl who just wouldn't wait.
Seven for the prayers we send up to Heaven.
Six for the books that we call sticks.
Five for Alma who came back alive.
Four for the Lord that stands at the door.
Three for the tree in Lehi's dream.
Two for Alma and Amulek.
One for the little bitty baby.
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Gosh I heard this song when I was young in my sisters room, she was probably at university and I imagine I went in to her room and listened to this song on a record player. I remember my sister had a beautiful iroko chest of drawers with brass or bronze corners and handles. - I am so glad I heard this song again - about 40 years have passed by since.
