    William Blake’s “The Lamb” paints a picture by using aspects of imagery of how “the Lamb” in the poem represents the Lamb of God, which is Jesus.

    soot from destroying or contaminating it. While Tom cried, however, our narrator finds solace in the experience, claiming in lines seven and eight that it, “for when your head's bare, / You know that the soot cannot spoil your white hair."
