The Lamb

Little 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, 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, & 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!

⚜ William Blake (1757-1827) ⚜
