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 that are still copyright may also be included, if these are particularly appropriate.
Psalm 32 - May your love be upon us O Lord as we place our hope in You / The word of the Lord is faithful / The Lord looks on those who revere him / Our soul is waiting for the Lord.
Second: II Timothy - rely on the power of God who has saved us and called us to be holy.
Gospel: Matthew - Jesus is transfigured, his face shines like the sun ... God says "This is my Son the Beloved, he enjoys my favour, listen to him".
