Hymns for the 6th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year A

A selection of  hymns and song suggestions, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the sixth 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 - sometimes in a limited setting.

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




Readings

First:  Ecclesiasticus - You can keep the commandments ... God has given no one permission to sin.

Psalm 118 - Happy are those who follow God's law / You have laid down the precepts / Bless your servant and I shall live / Teach me the demands of your statutes.

Second: I Corinthians - We have a wisdom to offer those who have reached maturity - the hidden wisdom of God - what scripture calls the things no eye has seen ... the very things God revealed to us through the Spirit.

Gospel: Matthew - Jesus says "I have not come to abolish the Law and the Prophets, but to complete them" and explains certain aspects of the Law in light of his teaching.
