Hymns for the 18th Sunday after Pentecost - Proper 23 (28), Year C (9 Oct 2022) - Revised Common Lectionary

Hymn and songs ideas based on themes from the revised common lectionary for the eighteenth Sunday 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 of these 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 be included in they are particularly relevant.

Suggestions about hymns that could be included are welcome: leave a comment below.


Jeremiah 29:1, 4-7
The prophet tells the remaining exiles in Babylon that the Lord wants them to make homes there and to seek the welfare of the city.
II Kings 5:1-3, 7-15c - Naaman the leper is healed in the Jordan after following Elisha's instructions.  He returns to Elisha, and acknowledges there is no God except the Lord.

Second:  II Timothy 2:8-15  - Paul reflects that he is suffering - but they cannot chain up God's good news ... If we have died with him then we shall live with him.   Encourages Timothy to be steadfast.

Gospel:  Luke 17:11-19  - Jesus heals the ten lepers - only one returns to give God thanks. ... Go, your faith has saved you.


Gratefulness.  Suffering.   Recognizing God.   Thankfulness.   God's faithfulness in spite of our unfaithfulness.
