Bless you, little lamb.
No need to fear evil,
Your shepherd is with you.
May His rod and staff comfort you.
Even in the darkest valley
You need not be afraid because
The Lord, the Shepherd, is strong and tender.
See that rod? No wolf can survive its blow.
See that staff? No lamb can wander from its crook.
When the valleys are lowest
And the shadows are darkest,
Your shepherd is most wide-eyed—
To draw you near with His staff
And to repel the predator with His rod.
So, fear not little lamb.
The Good Shepherd, Jesus,
Is not willing for you to get lost
And He is not willing for the devil to win.
