Go back to The Shepherd (from Songs of Innocence)

William Blake (1757 - 1827)
The Shepherd (from Songs of Innocence)

How sweet is the Shepherd's sweet lot!
From the morn to the evening he strays;
He shall follow his sheep all the day,
And his tongue shall be filled with praise.

For he hears the lamb's innocent call,
And he hears the ewe's tender reply;
He is watchful while they are in peace,
For they know when their Shepherd is nigh.
