Little Lamb, who made thee?

Dost thou know who made thee?

Gave thee life, and bid thee feed,

By the stream and O’er the mead;

Softest clothing, wooly, bright; 

Gave thee such a tender voice,

Making all the value rejoice?

Little Lamb, who made thee?

Dost thou know who made thee?

Little Lamb, I’ll tell thee,

Little Lamb, I’ll tell thee,

He is called by the name,

For he calls Himself a Lamb.

He is meek, and He is mild;

He became a little child.

I a child, and thou a Lamb,

We are called by his name.

Could you please help me understand the meaning of the highlighted words in the above poem?

These are Old English words.

‘Dost’ means ‘Do’.

‘Thee’ and ‘Thou’ both mean ‘you’ (thou is subject form, thee is object form).

‘O’er’ means ‘over’.

“Little lamb, who made you? Do you know who made you?...By the stream over the mead.”

Hope that helps.
