Representative 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.

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]
