Hymn suggestions, 10th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C (5 June 2016)

A selection of  hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the 10th Sunday in Ordinary Time in Year C

Most are free-to-use, 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 selection of hymns that are still subject to copyright may also be included, if they are particularly relevant

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


First: Kings - Elijah appeals to God on behalf of a woman whose son was dying, God hears the prayer and restores life to the boy.

Psalm: 29 - I will praise you Lord, you have rescued me / Sing psalms to the Lord / The Lord listened and had pity

Second: Galatians - Paul tells about how God chose him to preach the good news.

Gospel:   Luke - Jesus raises a widow's son from the dead at Nain


Healing.   Praise.   Jesus as the new Elijah.   Jesus restores life to us, through conversion.
