In the pleasant sunny meadows,
Where the buttercups are seen,
And the daisies' little shadows
Lie along the level green,
Flocks of quiet sheep are feeding,
Little lambs are playing near,
And the watchful shepherd leading
Keeps them safe from harm and fear.
Like the lambs we little children
Have a shepherd kind and good;
It is God who watches o'er us,
Gives us life and daily food.
