Ode to the Goat

Adapted from the hymn
"I Am Jesus' Little Lamb"
by Henrietta L. von Hayn, 1724-1782

I am Jesus' little goat,
Ever glad at heart I am;
For my Herder gently guides me,
Knows my need, and well provides me,
Loves me every day the same,
Even calls me by my name.

Day by day, at home, away,
Jesus is my Staff and Stay.
When I hunger, Jesus feeds me,
Into pleasant pastures leads me;
When I thirst, He bids me go
Where the quiet waters flow.

Who so happy as I am,
Even now the Herder's goat?
And when my short life is ended,
By His angel host attended,
He shall fold me to His breast,
There within His arms to rest.
