Hymns for the 6th Sunday after Pentecost - Proper 11 (16), Year C (17 July 2022) - Revised Common Lectionary

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Revised Common lectionary for the sixth Sunday in after Pentecost 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:   Amos 8:1-12   The Lord shows Amos a basket of summer fruit, predicts the time of judgement and a famine of hearing the words of the LORD. He promises that he will never pass by Israel again.
Genesis 18:1-10a - 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:  52 - Why do you boast, O mighty one, of mischief done against the godly
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 1:15-28  He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation ... the head of the body, the church.... For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell .... I, Paul, became a servant of this gospel.  I am now rejoicing in my sufferings for your sake .... It is he whom we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone in all wisdom.

Gospel:   Luke 10:38-42 - Jesus visits the home of Martha and Mary:  Martha welcomes him but is distracted with the serving, her sister Mary sits at his feet and listens:  Jesus says this is the better part.


Hospitality, service.  Recognizing and welcoming Jesus as God and Man.
