Little lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Gave thee life, and bade thee feed
by the stream and 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, and He is mild,
He became a little child;
I a child, and thee a lamb,
we are called by His name.
Little lamb, God bless thee,
Little lamb, God bless thee!
