I'm gonna send you eight by eight
Eight for the eight that stood at the gate
Seven for the seven came down from Heaven
Six for the six that couldn't get 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
One for the little bitty baby
One for the little bitty baby
He was born ow He was born
He was born in Bethlehem
