Hymns for the 7th Sunday of Easter, Year A (28 May 2017 - in some countries)

A selection of free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free) hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for seventh Sunday of Easter, Year A.

"Free-to-use" means 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.

Seasonal Note

In some countries, the Ascension is celebrated on a Sunday, while in others it is a mid-week feast and the 7th Sunday of Easter is also observed.  See your local liturgical calendar for details.


First: Acts - After Jesus ascended, the apostles returned to the upper room and joined in continuous prayer.

Psalm: 26 - I am sure I shall see the Lord's goodness in the land of the living / The Lord is my light and my help / There is one thing I ask of the Lord / O Lord hear my voice when I call.

Second: Ephesians - If anyone should suffer for being a Christian, then he is not to be ashamed of it - he should thank God that he has been called one.

Gospel: John - Jesus prayed "Father .. glorify your Son, so that your Son may glorify you ... I have finished the work that you gave me to do  ... I have made your name known  ... I am not in the world an longer, but they are in the world.


Prayer, praising God, living in the world now that Jesus has gone to heaven.
