LITTLE lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee,
Gave thee life, and bid thee feed
By the stream and o'er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, woolly, 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, and He is mild,
He became a little child.
I a child and thou a lamb,
We are called by His name.

Little lamb, God bless thee!
Little lamb, God bless thee !

THE LITTLE LOVERS. THERE were a little boy and a little girl

Who liv'd in an alley :
Says the little boy to the little girl,

"Shall I, oh, shall I ?"
Says the little girl to the little boy,

“ What shall we do ?” Says the little boy to the little girl,

“I will kiss you.'
