37. Sheep and Lambs
 
ALL in the April morning, 
  April airs were abroad; 
The sheep with their little lambs 
  Pass'd me by on the road. 
  
The sheep with their little lambs         5
  Pass'd me by on the road; 
All in an April evening 
  I thought on the Lamb of God. 
  
The lambs were weary, and crying 
  With a weak human cry;  10
I thought on the Lamb of God 
  Going meekly to die. 
  
Up in the blue, blue mountains 
  Dewy pastures are sweet: 
Rest for the little bodies,  15
  Rest for the little feet. 
  
Rest for the Lamb of God 
  Up on the hill-top green; 
Only a cross of shame 
  Two stark crosses between.  20
  
All in the April evening, 
  April airs were abroad; 
I saw the sheep with their lambs, 
  And thought on the Lamb of God.
