The Lamb

Little Lamb who made thee
Dost thou know who made thee
Gave thee life & bid thee feed.
By the stream & o’er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing wooly bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice!
Little Lamb who made thee
Dost thou know who made thee

Little Lamb I’ll tell thee,
Little Lamb I’ll tell thee!
He is called by thy name,
For he calls himself a Lamb:
He is meek & he is mild,
He became a little child:
I a child & thou a lamb,
We are called by his name.
Little Lamb God bless thee.
Little Lamb God bless thee.

In this poem i think that the lamb symbolizes Jesus, Jesus is known as the “lamb of god”.  “He is called by thy name, For he calls himself a Lamb, He is meek & he is mild, He became a little child.” All these lines point to the lamb representing Jesus because he was born a child and grew up to be a meek and mild person.  The Lamb is showing all that is good on the earth and how it came to be.  Jesus is blessing this lamb so it can bring good to people.  Jesus sent this lamb to earth to show all people that they should honor and respect him.”Gave thee clothing of delight, Softest clothing wooly bright” is reminding the lamb and all of its followers that Jesus has helped give people what they need in their time of despair. Jesus has given them the necessities needed to live a fulfilling life. “wooly bright” shows the quality of every gift Jesus has sent down from heaven to help our world better in every way. When the lamb is asked “Dost thou know who made thee” i believe that this shows how faith is not communicated thoroughly in our world.  Our world consists of so many non believers and when Blake wrote this poem he was communicating that we need to improve on how many people follow Christ and respect the name.  At the end of this poem Jesus is blessing this lamb so that it will know his name and spread it to all the non believers in this sin filled world.
