“The Lamb” – By William Blake

December 26, 2013

   William_Blake_by_Thomas_PhillipsLittle Lamb who made thee 
   Dost thou know who made thee 
Gave thee life & bid thee feed. 
By the stream & o’er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing wooly 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 & he is mild, 
He became a little child: 
I a child & thou a lamb, 
We are called by his name.
   Little Lamb God bless thee. 
   Little Lamb God bless thee.
