In the Communion for the 4th week of Easter, Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd, and I know my sheep and mine know me.” (John 10:14).
In a simple two and a half line melody, the joy and safety of being known is beautifully portrayed. Last week he was known in the breaking of the bread. This week we are made even more aware of his watchcare over each one of us in an intimate, personal way.
Ego sum pastor bonus et cognosco oves meas, et cognoscunt me meae.
