Hymns for the 21st Sunday after Pentecost - Proper 26 (31), Year C (30 Oct 2022) - Revised Common Lectionary

A selection of hymns and songs, based on themes from the Revised Common lectionary for the twenty-first Sunday after Pentecost, 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 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 they are particularly relevant.


Habakkuk 1:1-4; 2:1-4
The oracle that the prophet Habakkuk saw: 
O LORD, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not listen? ... The wicked surround the righteous-- therefore judgment comes forth perverted.   Then the Lord answered  "For there is still a vision for the appointed time" ...
Isaiah 1:10-18
God speaks to the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, telling them to make [them]selves clean ...cease to do evil,  learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow.  

Second:  II Thessalonians 1:1-4, 11-12 We pray that God will make you worthy ... Christ will be glorified in you.   Turn to the coming of Jesus - but do not be alarmed by predictions that the day has come.

Gospel: Luke 19: 1-10 - Zacchaeus the tax-collector climbed a tree so Jesus would see him - Jesus dined with him, Zacchaeus has a change of heart and is saved.  Jesus came to seek and save the lost.


Jesus in our midst: our protector and Saviour of the lost.   Forgiveness.   The love of God.   Sending forth.
