Hymn ideas for the 7th Sunday after Epiphany / 2nd Sunday before Lent - Revised Common Lectionary

Hymns and songs, based on themes from the Revised Common lectionary for the seventh Sunday after Epiphany / 2nd Sunday before Lent, 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.

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 45:3-11, 15 - Joseph returns to his brothers saying "And now do not be distressed, or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life." and then tells them where to settle so he can provide for them during the years of famine.

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 compassionate.


Mercy and compassion - the love of the Father.
