Text Information:

This text was inspired by how the prophet Hosea describes the parental nature of God’s relationship with Israel (Hosea 11:1–19). The last stanza echoes Christ’s teachings about love of neighbor (Matthew 22:37–40/Mark 12:29–31) and care for “the least of these” (Matthew 25:31–46).
