Queer Hymns


Tagged: queer hymn texts

All-loving, embracing, God of our hearts
As colors in the sky
As from the tomb stepped Lazarus
As if in the upper room
Beyond a gentle tolerance
Bring the feast to every hillside
But for your flesh
Can you see Christ
Christ our health
Christ, who throughout these forty days
Come, let us welcome
Come, thou long-expected Jesus
Come, welcome Christ in every face
First they came
For everyone born, a place at the table
For the goodness of our bodies
God loves us in mysterious ways
God of queer transgressive spaces
God we gather as your people
God you invite us
God-among-us in the faces of your children everywhere
Goddess of love
Good for the world
Great love, your loveliness is signed
Hear our prayer, O Holy God
I can hear His music in my soul
In the desert where they’d wandered
In the midst of new dimensions
It’s not enough
Jane has a gift for the altar
Jesus, partner, lover, friend
Lead on, O sacred Spirit
Now thank we all our God for giving our love voices
On a ship that has no charted course
Once we were not a people
Our song we sing in praise of God
Quirky, queer, and wonderful
The arc of history
The love that goes unspoken
There is room in God’s great welcome
Though the Spirit’s gifts are many
True union is a gift from God
Walls of color
We are a gentle, angry people
We are not going away
We are the singers
We cannot make an easy, safe distinction
Welcome in the name of Christ
When bodies join and souls combine
When illness meets denial and rejection
When Israel camped in Sinai
When Jesus summoned Lazarus
Who are we? — Lord, we are yours!
Who is my mother
Who is She?
Who will stand forth
