The Lamb Awakes

The lamb awakes,
Startled in the night;
Frightened,
By the darkness,
And the stillness;
But the Shepherd
Puts out His hand,
Resting it,
On the troubled brow;
And the little one,
Sinks to rest,
Once again:
"Oh let me feel
Thee near me;
Only in the darkness;
Just to feel
Thy hand.

Amen.
