A Gay Male Carol (a Lutitune)

We three queans of Christendom are

bearing gifts we traverse afar,

lay and clergy, collared and mitred,

following yonder star.



Born a quean in ECUSA’s plain,

INTEGRITY I bring to my king;

king for ever, ceasing never,

over us all to reign.


Roman Catholics

Born a quean of holy Rome,

DIGNITY I bring to God’s throne.

Prayers and praising, all souls raising,

worship God and God alone.



Passion’s mine. Its loving perfume

breathes a life of gathering room,

panting, sighing, living, dying,

Creator’s sport and womb.

Glorious now behold God arise,

King and God, and Sacrifice,

heav’n sings Alleluia:

Alleluia the earth replies.



Oh, oh, star of wonder, star of light…….
