298. I am Jesus' little lamb

1 I am Jesus’ little lamb,
Therefore glad and gay I am;
Jesus loves 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 I 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 and gay,
In this blessed fold all day,
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.
