Hymn suggestions, 14th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year C (3 July 2016)

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time in 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 such 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 particular relevant.

Art for this week

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


First: Isaiah - Rejoice Jerusalem ... now I send flowing peace like a river ... to his servants the Lord will reveal his hand.

Psalm:  65 - Cry out with joy to God all the earth / before you all the earth shall bow / He turned the sea into dry land / Come and hear all who fear God.

Second: Galatians - What matters is for [a person] to be come a new creature - peace and mercy to all who follow this rule, who form the Israel of God - the marks on my body are those of Jesus.

Gospel:   Luke - Jesus sends the 72 out - the harvest is rich but the labourers are few ... let your first words be "peace to this house" ... rejoice that your names are written in heaven.


Peace - God's word expressed in human persons and their actions.
