“The Lamb” By William Blake

My poem of the week this week is Blake’s “The Lamb,” a really nice poem for children telling them about Jesus the Lamb of God. Sometimes I love Blake’s poems, sometimes I don’t like them at all. This one is great.

“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 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.

  2. I’m sure you’ve heard the arrangement of this piece by John Tavener? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-mSmEfLmZc
