Today, has turned out to be a historic day for the LGBTQ+ community in the
US. While there is much, much, work to be done for justice in our country
and world - this a moment when mourning has been turned into dancing!
I encourage you to take some time today to listen to this interpretation of
You have turned my sorrow to dancing and song
You’ve taken my sackcloth and clothed me with joy
So my soul may praise you, be silent no more,
My Lord and my God I’ll give thanks evermore!
I will praise you, O God, for you’ve lifted me up
My foes did not triumph when I called you for help
You have healed me and lifted my soul from the pit
Restored me to life, I’m contented and blessed
Sing praise to the Lord, O you faithful in heart
Give thanks to the Almighty, Creator of earth
God’s anger will last but a moment in time
I weep through the night but the morning brings light
As for me, I said in my prosperity,
“I’m strong as a mountain, they will never move me”
But you hid your face, Lord, and I was dismayed,
“O hear me,” I cried, “and be gracious I pray”
And if I am silent, then what will be gained?
The dust will not praise you, it will not proclaim
But show me your love and your faithfulness
Be merciful to me, O Lord, be my help
