Hymn Suggestions, 5th Sunday of Easter, Year C (24 April 2016)

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the fifth Sunday of Easter, Year C.

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 - 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 number of particularly appropriate hymns that are still copyright may also be included.

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



Readings

First: Acts - Paul and Barnabas continue their travels - in each church, the appointed elders and commended them to the Lord.  Eventually they return to Antioch and give an account of their work.

Psalm: 144 - I will bless your name forever, O God my King / The Lord is kind and full of compassion / All your creatures should thank you / Yours is an everlasting kingdom .

Second: Apocalypse - John saw a new heaven and new earth - the new Jerusalem ... now I am making the whole of creation new.

Gospel:   John - I will give you a new commandment, love one another just as I have loved you.


Themes

A new creation - Christ puts fresh heart into the disciples - Christ lives among us - all are made new.
