Children, go where I send thee
How shall I send thee?

I'm gonna send thee … twelve by twelve
Twelve for the twelve apostles
Eleven for the Eleven who went to heaven,
Ten for the ten commandments,
Nine for the nine who saw the sign,
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate,
Seven for the seven who came from heaven,
Six for the jars where the wine was mixed,
Five for the Gospel preachers.
Four for the poor come knockin’ on the door
Three for the Hebrew children
Two for Paul and Silas
One for the little bitty baby
Born, born, born in Bethlehem.
