Hymns suggestions for Trinity Sunday, Year A (11 June 2017)

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity (Trinity Sunday), 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. Many such hymns are old/traditional - but where possible a variety of styles / genres are included.

A small selection of hymns which may still be copyright is included, if these are particularly appropriate.




Readings

First: - Moses goes up Mt Sinai as the Lord had commanded, and proclaims God ".. a God of tenderness and compassion, slow to anger, rich in kindness and faithfulness" - he begs God to be with his people.

Second: II Corinthians - Be united .. live in peace ... The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you.
