Hymns for the 19th Sunday after Pentecost - Proper 24 (29), Year C (16 Oct 2022) - Revised Common Lectionary

A selection of free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free) hymns and songs, based on themes from the Revised Common lectionary for the ninteenth Sunday after Pentecost in Year C.

"Free-to-use" means 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 also be included, if these are particularly relevant.

Suggestions about hymns that could be included are welcome: leave a message in the Comments box near the bottom of the page.


Jeremiah 31:27-34 - The days are coming, says the LORD, when I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah ... when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah.  ... I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Genesis 32:22-31
Jacob wrestles with the mysterious stranger, who renames him "Israel" - Jacob recognises that he has seen God face to face, and yet still lives.

Second:  II Timothy 3:14 - 4:5 - Scripture is inspired by God and can therefore be used for teaching people to be holy.   Your duty is to proclaim the message - with patience and the intention of teaching.

Gospel:  Luke 18:1-8  - Parable of the judge and the persistent widow:   God will see justice done to his chosen who cry to him ... but when the Son of Man comes, will he find any on earth?


Christ opened his arms on the cross like Moses did - we are called to join him and not to lose heart, to be steadfast in faith in God's mercy.   Our call to prayer / petition.  Persistence.
