Hymns for the 4th Sunday after Epiphany, Year A (29 Jan 2023) - Revised Common Lectionary

Hymns and song suggestions, based on themes from the Revised Common lectionary for the 4th Sunday of after Epiphany in Year A.

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 also be included, if these are particular 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: Micah 6:1-8  "what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"

Psalm 15 - O LORD, who may abide in your tent.

Second: I Corinthians 1:18-31 : God chose what is foolish by human reckoning ... God has made members of Christ Jesus and by doing so has become our wisdom, virtue, holiness and freedom.

Gospel: Matthew 5:1-12 - The Beatitudes - happy are the poor in spirit, theirs is the kingdom of heaven.


The Beatitudes: Blessed are the poor - what does does God require.
Human nothingness without God.
