Hymn suggestions for the 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C (2 October 2016)

Hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time, 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 selection of hymns which are still copyright may also be included, if they are particularly relevant.


Readings

First: Habakkuk - How long Lord am I to cry for help .. the Lord answered "Write the vision down ... see how he flags, he whose soul is not at rights, but the upright man will live by his faithfulness".

Psalm:  94 - O that today you would listen to his voice, harden not your hearts / Come ring out our joy to the Lord / Come let us bow and bend low.

Second:  II Timothy  - I am reminding you to fan into a flame the gift [of the spirit] that God gave you ... you have been trusted to look after something precious.

Gospel:  Luke  -  If you had faith the size of this mustard seed, you could move a mulberry tree.  Do what you have been told to do and say "We are merely servants, we have done no more than our duty".


Themes

Faith.   Service.   Doing God's will.   The new vision that faith gives.
