Hymns, 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the twenty-fourth Sunday of Ordinary time, Year B.

Most are free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free) meaning the words can be copied and sung to at least one tune with no concerns about copyright or performance licensing.  Many such hymns are old/traditional - but where possible a variety of styles / genres are included.

A small selection of hymns which are, or may be, still copyright are also included where they are a particularly good for for the theme(s).




Readings

First: Isaiah 50 - The suffering servant:  I made no resistance - offered my back to those who struck me.  The Lord comes to my aid.  

Psalm: 11:   I will walk in the presence of God / I love the Lord for he has heard my cry

Second: James 2 - Faith without good works to go with it is dead.

Gospel: Mark 8 - Who do people say I am?   Peter recognises The Christ, but struggles with his need to suffer ... take up your cross and follow me.


Themes

Suffering, and our need to assist others in their suffering.   Salvation / redemption through suffering.  No redemption without crucifixion.

Suggested free-use hymns

At the Lamb's High Feast we Sing

Christ be with Me

Come my Way, my Truth, my Life

Fight the Good Fight

God is Love His the Care

God is Working His Purpose Out

How can I Keep from Singing

I Bind my Heart this Tide

I Have Decided to Follow Jesus

I Received the Living God

In the Cross of Christ

My Song is Love Unknown

O Jesus I have Promised

Praised to the Holiest in the Heights

Take my Life and Let it Be

There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy

Those who Love and Those who Labour

We Walk by Faith

What Wondrous Love Is This

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
