Hymns for the 19th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year A (13 August 2023) - Catholic lectionary

A selection of hymns and song suggestions, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the ninetenth Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year A.

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 of these hymns are old / traditional - but where possible a variety of styles and genres are included.

A small selection of hymns that may still be copyright may also be included, if they are particularly appropriate.

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: I Kings 19:9, 11-13 - Elijah experiences God's power on the mountain, through wind, earthquake, fire and gentle breeze.

Psalm 84 - Let us see O Lord, your mercy and give us your saving help / I will hear what the Lord God has to say / Mercy and faithfulness have met / The Lord will make us prosper.

Second: Romans 9: 1-5 - I would willingly be condemned and cut off from Christ if it could help by brothers of Israel ... from them came Christ who is above all, God forever blessed.

Gospel: Matthew  14: 22-33 - Jesus walks on the water.


Hearing the voice of God.  Jesus as the mediator of God's safety.  Trust in God.   Peace.   The calm after the storm.
