The Lamb by William Blake

William Blake (1757-1827)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, 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!
Jesus holding a lamb

William Blake has provided a wonderful poem that my grandchildren found delightful and an opportunity to talk about our Christian beliefs. 

As (grand)parent we want our (grand)children to experience the beauty and wonder that poetry and music bring to our understanding of the world around us and to our spiritual lives.  

It is important that we experience poetry with our (grand)children at every opportunity.
