Hymns for the 8th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year A (26 February 2017)

Hymn and song suggestions, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the eighth Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year A.

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 of these hymns are old / traditional - but where possible a variety of styles and genres are included.

Some hymns that are still copyright may also be included, if they are particularly appropriate.





Readings

First:  Isaiah - Does a woman forget the baby at her breast?   ... Yet even if these forget, I will never forget you.

Psalm 61 - In God alone my soul is at rest / In God is my safety and glory.

Second: I Corinthians - People must think of us as Christ's servants ... who should be worthy of his trust.   But there must be on passing of premature judgement - leave that until the Lord comes, he will light up all that is hidden and reveal the secret intentions of human hearts.

Gospel: Matthew - You cannot be the slave of both God and money.


Themes

Trust.   Faith.    God's infinite love and care for humankind.
