The Lamb

Little lamb, who made thee
Dost thou know who made thee,
Gave thee life, and bid thee feed
By the stream and oโ€™er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, woolly, bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice?
Little lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?

Little lamb, Iโ€™ll tell thee;
Little lamb, Iโ€™ll tell thee:
He is called by thy name,
For He calls Himself a Lamb.
He is meek, and He is mild,
He became a little child.
I a child, and thou a lamb,
We are called by His name.
Little lamb, God bless thee!
Little lamb, God bless thee!

โˆ’ William Blake, from Songs of Innocence (1789)
