Hymn: He taught in puns and riddles

Fourth Sunday of Easter Year A
John 10: 1-10

He taught in puns and riddles,
in pictures wrung from words,
of gates and fields and shepherds,
of fish and flowers and herds.
These parables are potent,
ingrained with hope and grace,
infused with love and beauty,
transcending time and place.

So Jesus, Word incarnate,
became the word he spoke,
embodied loving kindness,
in whom our faith awoke...
