Hymn suggestions, 7th Sunday of Easter, Year C

Hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the 6th Sunday of Easter, Year C.

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

A small selection of hymns that are still copyright may also be included, if these are particularly relevant to the day's readings.

Seasonal note

Depending on local customs and the timing of Easter, the 7th week of the season may not be in the liturgical calendar in some years


Readings

First: Acts - Stephen sees a vision of heaven thrown open and the Son of May at the right hand of God.

Psalm: 96 - The Lord is king, most high above all the earth / The skies proclaim his justice / For you indeed are the Lord.

Second: Apocalypse - John hears a voice "Very soon I shall be with you again ... these revelations come from Jesus"

Gospel:   John - Jesus prays to the Father for all the disciples and the people who will come to believe in him through their words - prays for unity and love - may they be completely one.
