Representative Text

1 I am Jesus’ little lamb,
He’ll wash me white as snow,
And to the place where He has gone,
He’ll surely let me go.

Keep me, Jesus, while I sleep,
And guide me through the day,
For while I sleep I cannot sin,
But when I wake, I may.

2 Lead me to the waters still,
And through the pastures green,
But in the way of vice and sin,
O let me ne’er be seen. [Refrain]

3 Teach me how to patient be,
Let love within me stay,
That I may help to bring to Thee
The little lambs that stray. [Refrain]
