Lamb I Am
Virginia Salter

I Am Lamb, Lamb I Am
Come and find me, says Lamb I Am.

That Lamb I Am, that Lamb I Am
You do not like that Lamb I Am.
So you say, everyday
You do not like Him
Any way!

Wonít you try Him in the dark?
Wonít you try His Spiritís spark?
Wonít you try His wondrous glee?
Try Him, try Him, you will see!

That Lamb I Am, that Lamb I Am
Wonít you try that Lamb I Am?
Would you try Him in a boat?
He would keep you well afloat.

Would you try Him in a pinch?
Would you try Him with a finch?
Would you try Him on the house?
Would you try Him in a blouse?

That Lamb I Am, that Lamb I Am
Wonít you try that Lamb I Am?
Would you try Him with your sister?
Would you try Him, right now, Mister?

Would you try Him when youíre sad?
Would you try Him when youíre mad?
Would you try Him now with me?
Try Him, try Him, you will see!

That Lamb I Am, that Lamb I Am!
How I love that Lamb I Am!
He promised to be with me always,
both in big and then in small ways.

He carries me when Iím down;
He lifts me up when I frown.
He gave His life so I wonít die
and I donít need to ask Him why?

That Lamb I Am, that Lamb I Am!
Oh, how I love that Lamb I Am!


If I try Him, will you go?
If I try Him, then youíll know!

If you try Him, I will go!
If you try Him, you will know!


That Lamb I Am, that Lamb I Am!
I do so love that Lamb I Am!
I will follow where He leads!
I will plant His loving seeds!

Oh, Lamb I Am, Oh, Lamb I Am!
You may have my life, I Am!
