Hymns for the 19th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year C (11 August 2019)

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the ninteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time in 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 such hymns are old/traditional - but where possible a variety of styles and genres are included.

A small selection of hymns which are still copyright may also be included, if they are particularly relevant.

Suggestions about hymns that could be included are welcome: leave a message in the Comment box near the bottom of the page.


Readings

First: Wisdom 18:6-9 - ... once they say what kind of oaths they had put their trust in, they would joyfully take courage ... this divine pact .. that the saints would share the same blessings and dangers alike

Psalm: 18 - Happy are the people the Lord has chosen as his own / Ring out your joy to the Lord O you just / The Lord looks on those who revere him / Our soul is waiting for the Lord

Second: Hebrews 11:1-2, 8-19 - It was by faith that Abraham set out .. it was by faith that Sarah was made able to conceive.

Gospel:   Luke 12: 32-48 - Be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect - parable of the unfaithful servant.


Themes

Faith, faithfulness, being ready.   We are God's chosen people, looking forward in faith and hope to the God of Abraham, Issac and Jocob, and a glorious future.
