Jesus' little lamb

I am Jesus' little lamb, therefore glad and gay I am

Full Text

1 I am Jesus' little lamb,
Therefore glad at heart I am;
Jesus loves me, Jesus knows me,
All that's good and fair He shows me,
Tends me ev'ry 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 all day
In this blessèd fold to stay,
By this holy Shepherd tended,
Whose kind arms, when life is ended,
Bear me to the world of light?
Yes, O yes, my lot is bright.

Amen.

She died at Herrnhut, Aug. 27, 1782. (Koch, vi. 443-447; Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie, xi. 1.58, &c.) She was a gifted hymnwriter. A fervent love to Christ pervades her produc¬tions; and they are remarkably free from the unpleasant sentimentalism and that dwelling on the physical details of our Lord'… Go to person page >
