Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

from William Blake – The Tyger on Rap Genius

Meaning

Blake references his earlier poem, “The Lamb,” and, in doing so, highlights one of the major questions addressed in his companion volumes Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience, loosely expressed as “Wait…is God personally involved in ALL this shit? Even the evil stuff?” This is also one of the questions that the book of Job seeks to answer.
