Little Lamb, Who Made Thee?


William Blake was born yesterday, 1757.  One of his most famous poems is one of my favorites. It’s a good launch into Advent. <!--[endif]-->

Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Gave thee life, and bid thee feed,
By the stream and o'er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, woolly, bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice?
Little Lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee? <!--[endif]-->

<p class="MsoNormal">
Little Lamb, I&#39;ll tell thee, 
<br />
Little Lamb, I&#39;ll tell thee. 
<br />
He is called by thy name, <br />
For He calls Himself a Lamb. <br />
He is meek, and He is mild; <br />
He became a little child. <br />
I a child, and thou a lamb, <br />
We are called by His name. <br />
Little Lamb, God bless thee! <br />
Little Lamb, God bless thee!
