1 Little Lamb, who made thee?
2 Dost thou know who made thee?
3Gave thee life, and bid thee feed
4By the stream and o'er the mead;
5Gave thee clothing of delight,
6Softest clothing, woolly, bright;
7Gave thee such a tender voice,
8Making 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:
13He is called by thy name,
14For he calls himself a Lamb.
15He is meek, and he is mild;
16He became a little child.
17I a child, and thou a lamb.
18We are called by his name.
19 Little Lamb, God bless thee!
20 Little Lamb, God bless thee!
