Hymns for the 28th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year B (11 October 2015)

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the twenty-eightth 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 that are still be copyright may also included where they are a particularly good for for the theme(s).

See lectionary art for this Sunday for suggested pictures and art-works based on today's readings.


First: Wisdom - The spirit of Wisdom came to me - compared to her, I held riches as nothing.

Psalm: 89 (90) -  Fill us with your love that we may rejoice / Make us know the shortness of our life

Second: Hebrews - The word of God is alive and active - it gets in everywhere, nothing can hide from God

Gospel: Mark  - .What must I do to inherit eternal life?   Sell everything you own and follow me.  It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than to enter the kingdom of heaven - but in God, all things are possible.


God's wisdom and omnipotence.   Our richness lies in Christ, in God and eternal life.
