Hymns for the 7th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year C (24 February 2019)

Hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time in 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 such 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 they are particularly appropriate.


First: I Samuel 26 2, 7-9, 12-13, 22-23 - Today the Lord put you in my power, but I would not raise my hand against the Lord's anointed.

Psalm: 102 - The Lord is compassion and love / My soul give thanks to the Lord / It is he who forgives our guilt / As far as the east is from the west

Second: I Corinthians 15:45-49 - We who have been modelled on the earthly man will be modelled on the heavenly man.

Gospel:   Luke 6:27-38 - Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, turn the other cheek .. be compassionate as your Father is copassionate.


Mercy and compassion - the love of the Father.
