Hymns for the 9th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year A

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the ninth Sunday of Ordinary time, Year A.

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

A small selection of hymns which are, or may be, still copyright are also included where they are a particularly good for for the theme(s).

Readings

First:  Deuteronomy - Moses said "I set before you today a blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord our God, and a curse if you do not".

Psalm 30 - Be a rock of refuge for me O Lord / In you O Lord I take refuge / Let your face shine on your servant.

Second: Romans - God's justice has been revealed outside the Law and Prophets, in Jesus Christ.  A man is justified by faith, and not by doing something which the Law tells him to do.

Gospel: Matthew - The person who listens to these words of mine and does not act on them is like the stupid man who built his house on sand:  rains came, floods rose, gales blew and the house fell.    The person who hears God's word and obeys it will enter heaven.
