"Free-to-use" means 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.

Suggestions about hymns that could be included are welcome: leave a comment below.

Readings

First:  Leviticus - Be holy, for I your God am Holy.  [resolve conflicts with your brother]  Love your neighbour as yourself.

Psalm 102 - The Lord is compassion and love / My soul give thanks to the Lord / It is he who forgives all your guilt / As far as the east is from the west.

Second: I Corinthians - The wisdom of the world is foolishness to God ... you belong to Christ and Christ belongs to God.

Gospel: Matthew - Jesus says to turn the other cheek.   Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,   You must be perfect just as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Love - of enemies and neighbours.   Peace-making.
