Old Songs about Parables

So another quest in looking for old time spiriituals and hymns. I've come across a handful of songs based on Jesus' parables:


The Ninety-Nine, Eliza Clephane, 1868

Prodigal Son, Lee Hunsucker, 1930

O That Pearl of Great Price, Andrew Skoog, 1893

Dives and Lazarus, Child Ballad 56 (very old)

Come Ye Blessed, John Prindle Scott, 1917


I'm looking for old songs based on parables in the Bible, mostly Jesus', but I know there are a couple OT parables (though I cannot give reference to them at the moment). Preference is for songs in the Public Domain.
