Hymns for the 4th Sunday after Epiphany, Year C - Revised Common Lectionary

A selection of hymns and song suggestions, based on themes from the Revised Common lectionary for the fourth Sunday after Epiphany, 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. Many such hymns are old/traditional - but where possible a variety of styles / genres are included.  

A selection hymns which are still copyright may be included, where these are particularly appropriate.


First:   Jeremiah 1:4-10 - Before I formed you ... I knew you.   I have appointed you as a prophet.  I am with you.

Psalm: Psalm 71 - In you O Lord I take refuge 

Second: I Corinthians 13:1-13 - Love is patient and kind ... faith, hope and love, and the greatest of these is love.

Gospel: Luke  4: 21-30 - Jesus speaks in the synagogue - a prophet is never accepted in his own country.


The role of the prophet - trusting in God.  The complementary nature of love and prophecy.
