Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1 I am Jesus little lamb,
Happy all day long I am;
He will keep me safe from harm,
For I’m his lamb.

Refrain:
I am Jesus little lamb,
Happy all day long I am;
He will keep me safe I know,
For I’m his lamb.

2 By his staff I’m led along,
Guarded by his arm so strong,
I’m so happy all day long,
For I’m his lamb. [Refrain]

3 Then I never will repine,
While around his glories shine;
I am his and he is mine,
Oh, I’m his lamb. [Refrain]
