A watchful eye is caring for me. I am protected, safe, and free.
He is here watching, I am happy to be, He is here watching, watching over me.
I've been a lost lamb, just caring for me. I thought I had no one caring for me.
I was so lonely, tired and worn, but I looked around and this thought was born.
He is here watching, watching over me. Look little lamb, look around and see.
Look little lamb, He said , I am watching over thee. Drink from the water so pure and so clean.
Taste of the water, and then you will see. Open your eyes now, you are all clean.
See little lamb, you are white and all new. See little lamb, I will watch over you.
How kind dear sir, to watch over me. I am all white and clean and all new. You are so kind sir, to help me dear sir.
Thank you for watching, watching over me. I feel protected, safe, and free.
For the Lord He is watching, He is watching over me. I stayed near his feet, I was helpless and small, but he watched over me, that I should not fall.
Come little lamb, follow me to the water. You can drink from it there. I will help you not falter.
He knew that my knees were all tired and sore, from falling and falling, again on the floor.
Come little lamb, you can try it again. I know that you're weak, but I'll help you to stand.
You speak so kindly, I said to the man. You speak so kindly, You'll help me to stand.
I took a little drink, where he showed me the water, and I started to cry, my tears rolled down in the water.
Why are you crying, He said to me then? I have been crying, again, and again.
Oh Master can you help me? I have lost a hold, of my children over yonder, who are a part of my fold.
Can you call them dear Master. To see if they'll come To your water dear Master, Please see if they'll come.
You hold me in safety, with comfort and care. You speak to me gently, I have nothing to fear.
You are so kind dear Master. I am happy with thee. Even though I falter, You are still with me.
I am a little lamb, all torn and weak, But I will be happy to sit at your feet.
