The beloved poem by William Blake is here expressed with great sensitivity. The composer takes us to a dramatic climax in the penultimate phrase, and then concludes with a tender ending, “God bless thee.” Very special best describes this piece.
Dost thou know who made thee? Gave thee life, & bid thee feed, By the stream & o´er the mead;Gave the 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.
