Hymns for the 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C (17 July 2022)

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time in Year C.

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 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 relevant.

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


First: Genesis 18:1-10 - The Lord appears to Abraham.   He is welcomed, and a feast is prepared for.  The visitor enquires after Sarah, and promises that she will have a son within a year.

Psalm:  14 - The just will live in the presence of the Lord / Lord who shall dwell on your holy mountain / He who does no wrong to his brother / He who keeps his pledge

Second: Colossians 1:24-28 - I became the servant of the Church when God made me responsible for delivering God's message to you ... the message which was a mystery for generations is now revealed - Christ among you is now revealed

Gospel:   Luke 10:38-42 - Martha welcomes Jesus into her home, and is distracted with the serving - her sister Mary sat at his feet and listened, Jesus says this is the better part.


Hospitality, service.  Recognizing and welcoming Jesus as as our friend.
