How sweet is the Shepherd's sweet lot,

From the morn to the evening he strays:

He shall follow his sheep all the day

And his tongue shall be filled with praise.

For he hears the lambs innocent call,

And he hears the ewes tender reply,

He is watchful while they are in peace,

For they know when their Shepherd is nigh.

.: :.

William Blake's 'The Shepherd' is largely based on the relationship between God and every aspect of his creation. The Shepherd is an old and commonly used symbolic position that often appears in the bible, as Jesus is assocciated with shepherding and protecting man. The poem is naturalistic and jovial, the use of sibilance to describe the shepherd and his relationship with his flock emphasizes the harmony of the scene; 'how sweet is the shepherds sweet lot'. The compassion and mutual respect between the shepherd and his flock is reflected in the penlultimate line 'He is watchful whilst they are in peace, for they know when their shepherd is nigh'.
