Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

We are lambs of Jesus, and our hearts

Representative Text

1 We are lambs of Jesus, and our hearts their tribute bring,
We are precious little lambs, we are precious little lambs,
And our voices raise thanksgiving to our Lord and King,
We are lambs, little lambs, precious lambs.

Refrain:
We are little lambs, we are precious lambs,
We are little lambs, we are precious little lambs,
We are little lambs, we are precious lambs,
We are lambs, little lambs, precious lambs.

2 We are lambs of Jesus, ‘twas for such His life He gave,
We are precious little lambs, we are precious little lambs,
To reclaim the lost ones, all the little lambs to save,
We are lambs, little lambs, precious lambs. [Refrain]

3 We are lambs of Jesus, ev’ry footstep He will guide,
We are precious little lambs, we are precious little lambs,
We shall meet the Shepherd in His sheepfold e’er abide.
We are lambs, little lambs, precious lambs. [Refrain]
