309a. I am Jesus' Little Lamb

1 I am Jesus' little Lamb,
Therefore glad at heart I am;
Jesus love me, Jesus knows me,
All that's good and fair He shows me,
Tends me every day the same,
Even calls me by my name.

2 Out and in safely go,
Want and hunger never know;
Soft green pastures He discloseth,
Where His happy flock reposeth;
When I faint or thirsty be,
To the brook He leadeth me.

3 Should not I be glad all day
In this bless├ęd fold to stay?
By this holy Shepherd tended,
Whose kind arms, when life is ended,
Bear me to the world of light?
Yes! oh yes, my lot is bright.
