Virgin-born Son of God, to save man from the Fall.

Everywhere the Father led, His feet were sure to trod.

Mary had the little Lamb, crucified on the tree

The rejected Son of God, He died to set men free.

Mary had the little Lamb -- men placed Him in the grave,

Thinking they were done with Him; to death He was no slave!

Mary had the little Lamb, ascended now is He;

All work on Earth is ended, our Advocate to be.

Mary had the little Lame -- mystery to behold!

From the Lamb of Calvary, a Lion will unfold.

When the Day Star comes again, of this be very sure:

It won’t be Lamb-like silence, but with the Lion’s roar.
