Hymns for the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord , Year C (26 or 29 May 2022)

A selection of  hymns and songs suggestions, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord, Year C.

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 - 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 particularly-appropriate hymns that are still copyright may also be included.

Suggestions about hymns that could be included are welcome: leave a message in the Comments box near the bottom of the page.

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.
