The Lamb

William Blake
1757 – 1827

      Little Lamb, who made thee?

      Dost thou know who made thee?

Gave thee life, and bid thee feed

By the stream and o’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, I’ll tell thee,

    Little Lamb, I’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!
