William Blake
The Lamb (1789)

1

Little Lamb, who made thee?

2

Dost thou know who made thee?

3

Gave thee life, and bid thee feed

4

By the stream and o'er the mead;

5

Gave thee clothing of delight,

6

Softest clothing, woolly, bright;

7

Gave thee such a tender voice,

8

Making all the vales rejoice?

9

Little Lamb, who made thee?

10

Dost thou know who made thee?

 

 

11

Little Lamb, I'll tell thee,

12

Little Lamb, I'll tell thee:

13

He is called by thy name,

14

For he calls himself a Lamb.

15

He is meek, and he is mild;

16

He became a little child.

17

I a child, and thou a lamb.

18

We are called by his name.

19

Little Lamb, God bless thee!

20

Little Lamb, God bless thee!
