Hymns for Proper 5 (10th Ordinary) (3rd Sunday after Pentecost, 9 June 2024) - Revised Common Lectionary

A selection of hymn and song suggestions, based on themes from the Revised Common lectionary for the Sunday of Proper 5 (10th Ordinary), Year B.

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 may still be copyright are also included, if these are particularly relevant.

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


First: 1 Samuel 8:4-11, (12-15), 16-20, (11:14-15) - The elders of Israel asked Samuel for a king to govern them.  He prays about it, and reports the Lord's response to them, warning them of the risks.  But the people were determined to have a king over them, so they went to Gilgal, and there they made Saul king.
Genesis 3:8-15 - God curses the serpent which tempted Eve in the Garden

Second: 2 Corinthians 4:13 - 5:1  - .. when the tent we live in on hearth if folded up, there is a house build by God for as an everlasting home .

Gospel: Mark 3:20-35 -  Jesus went home with the disciples and there was a very large crowd:  the scribes were saying the devil was in him but he replied "... if a kingdom is divided against itself, it cannot stand." ... anyone who does the will of God, that person is my brother and sister and mother.


Forgiveness. God's mercy and desire for love not ritual. The fullness of redemption.
