    Lyrics:
    My lover's got humor
    She's the giggle at a funeral
    Knows everybody's disapproval
    I should've worshiped her sooner
    If the Heavens ever did speak
    She's the last true mouthpiece
    Every Sunday's getting more bleak
    A fresh poison each week
    "We were born sick", you heard them say it
    My church offers no absolutes
    She tells me, "Worship in the bedroom"
    The only Heaven I'll be sent to
    Is when I'm alone with you
    I was born sick, but I love it
    Command me to be well
    A-, Amen, Amen, Amen
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    If I'm a pagan of the good times
    My lover's the sunlight
    To keep the Goddess on my side
    She demands a sacrifice
    Drain the whole sea
    Get something shiny
    Something meaty for the main course
    That's a fine looking high horse
    What you got in the stable?
    We've a lot of starving faithful
    That looks tasty
    That looks plenty
    This is hungry work
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me my deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me my deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    No masters or kings when the ritual begins
    There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
    In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
    Only then I am human
    Only then I am clean
    Oh, oh, Amen, Amen, Amen
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life

    I'm queer, I've had sisters beaten in the streets, chased out of their hometowns, put through conversion therapy and sadly killed, for being who they are. Being Queer is not a sin, it is not an excuse to hurt people, attacking someone for not following your religion is not just a hate crime, its terrorism.

    [Verse 1]

    I love this song as much today as I did when it first played on my radio. Oregon, USA here. I'm writing about this piece for my humanities class. This is one of the best songs in history and it blows my mind that you didn't think it would be popular. I can understand that perspective when you consider what the content of the song is, but I recognize so many aspects of this song that are present in many other successful pieces. My point is that, even if you didn't believe in your power or the ability of society to accept and appreciate this piece of art, I am so thankful you still shared it with the world and I am so happy for you that it did what it did for your career. This song is so powerful and, unfortunately, timeless. Incredible work here, Hozier.

    I’ve been listening to this song over and over for years, without really paying attention to the video. You know, doing other things in the meantime, but today… it hit me like a rock and I’m crying rivers. 😭 such a strong message and such a talented songwriter did this. My heart goes out to all those who must live in fear, because of who they are ❤️

      Hello, rest your heart. When a person dies, God will hold him accountable for everything he has done in his life. And if you are under the rock in complete darkness (God sees you and knows everything about you and knows what is in your chest and what you hide and what you intend to do), God sent Muhammad to you as a mercy to the worlds. He brought us out of darkness into light and saved us from great torment, but most people turn away and do not want to hear. Open a new page when you enter Islam so that God will forgive you for the sins, cunning and crimes you have committed in your life, and you will answer all the questions that still raise concern such as (Who am I and who am I? Where did you come from, what are the duties required of me, what are my rights, and what Then it will happen to me, this death. I need Islam to answer all the questions that occupy my mind so that I can be reassured) and you have wide gardens. Like heaven and earth, if you die on this and that. It is the reward of the righteous. Heaven is the real life, a dignified and happy life, in it everything that souls desire and pleases the eyes, and you are in it forever and there is no death in it. And if you wish, say: I bear witness that there is no god but God, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of God. This is how I entered Islam. A great victory and a dignified life awaits you after death (Attention, leave people's affairs, nothing benefits you after your death, even your parents did not help you with anything. After your death unless they entered Islam) and forgive me for this. I know it's annoying... but I don't want anything... I don't want money from all this, I don't want anything from you, but the situation is great, I'm afraid for you and I want you to run out of torment after death and be in a safe place, because if I knew the truth I hid it from you, and he will hold me accountable. Allah. If you like this, read about the Prophet Muhammad, you will be sure that it is
      Truly a messenger from God. And that the Noble Qur’an is the real life idclips.com/video/B5fxD7VpJj0/video.html To learn more, watch the story of the Islam of this British scientist. idclips.com/video/nDg6HW2T5-g/video.html ............................................

    Eu amo essa música! Sempre me dá vontade de chorar... o cara que eu amo é homossexual. Infelizmente ele nunca será meu, mas dói saber que ele tem que lidar com esse tipo de preconceito. Espero que nunca o machuquem fisicamente porque psicologicamente eu sei que já o machucaram. Ele é uma pessoa de alma tão linda e brilhante e tem um coração enorme. Eu quero que ele seja feliz, sempre feliz com o rapaz que ele escolheu pra dividir a vida... que ele nunca perca o brilho que ele carrega no olhar... olhos tão lindos. Não quero que ninguém o machuque. Essa música me toca no fundo do coração.

I am starting to lose faith in God because of toxic people that I half to deal with on a daily basis. I never said anything about this song has nothing to do with the video! I said now I understand it and I still love this song ( that person knows who I am talking about.).

      The video has nothing to do with the song. It's about what a man goes through for the love of a woman. She probably didn't like it because it was sexual in nature.

    i remember listening to the song first and being amazed at how absolutely gorgeous the lyrics were- devotion described so beautifully that it resonated with me immediately, and then watching the video and deciding then and there that i NEEDED to listen to everything he had ever put out and support him to th eends of the earth... bby's just THAT fucking good at what he does, and take me to church is just THAT great a song 💗💗

    She's the giggle at a funeral
    Knows everybody's disapproval
    I should've worshiped her sooner
    If the Heavens ever did speak
    She's the last true mouthpiece
    Every Sunday's getting more bleak
    A fresh poison each week
    "We were born sick", you heard them say it
    My church offers no absolutes
    She tells me, "Worship in the bedroom"
    The only Heaven I'll be sent to
    Is when I'm alone with you
    I was born sick, but I love it
    Command me to be well
    A-, Amen, Amen, Amen
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    If I'm a pagan of the good times
    My lover's the sunlight
    To keep the Goddess on my side
    She demands a sacrifice
    Drain the whole sea
    Get something shiny
    Something meaty for the main course
    That's a fine looking high horse
    What you got in the stable?
    We've a lot of starving faithful
    That looks tasty
    That looks plenty
    This is hungry work
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me my deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me my deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    No masters or kings when the ritual begins
    There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
    In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
    Only then I am human
    Only then I am clean
    Oh, oh, Amen, Amen, Amen
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life

    First time hearing this song today. Watched the video.....What an impact !!! The lyrics hold true in my own walk of life..words I've spoken frequently, yet often fall on deaf ears. Puts me in mind of a Biblical passage--"No weapons formed against (me) shall ever prosper". Great work Hozier!! God bless 🙏💓✌🎼🎵🎶🎹

      Umm... this song was written as a criticism of the Catholic Church. [Hozier admitted that people took the title at "face value" and "were very upset when they found out that" it was not a song "actually about being taken to church."]

    Beautiful song that highlights the hypocrisy of religion.
    I was raised Catholic and I turned my back on it when I saw the hypocrisy. How can people have the audacity to shun those who have homosexual relationships (between two consenting adults, hurting nobody) whilst simultaneously protecting paedophile priests (whose "relationships" were often also same sex, just without the "two consenting adults" part, and caused lifelong trauma for their victims).
    In my last ever confession, I told the priest that I knew that he'd been abusing my younger cousin. He initially denied it but, when I told him I'd tell the entire congregation, he replied with "and? You can't stop me - this is my church and they are my boys. Nobody will believe a 14 year old and there is nothing you can do about it anyway". Then he scoffed. Maybe they wouldn't have believed me, but they believed the dictaphone I'd taken in with me, that caught all of it.
    He died in prison. I hope it was painful.

      @Amyah Wright Turning your back on an organization that has violated and harmed someone you love is not turning from God.
      And even if someone wants to turn from God that is their choice just as it is someone else’s to turn to God. Neither makes any difference to others.
      The only thing that matters is if they are a good person who protects and cares for those around them…and you don’t need God for that.
      I think OP showed in spades just what an amazing person they are to stand up for what is right and seek truth and justice for someone they loved.

      @Citi Dog That's kind of you, thank you, but I did what I think any good person would do - anything in their power to protect the people they love.
      My cousin is getting there (thank you 💖), and I think part of it will always be with him, but with the help of therapy and the support of his family and friends, he's moved on with his life and is now married with a family of his own. He'll never be 100%, but we're all determined to not let that bastard nonce take more than he already has. It certainly helped his recovery to know that we all had his back and that he will never see his abuser again 👍

    I first heard this song when I was a child, I also happened to see the first part of the music video when they kiss. I ended up turning it off and disliking it for years, all because my Christian mom told me being gay was wrong. Now I’ve grown up and realized I myself am gay, and my mom was what was wrong. This song means so much to me now because of this experience.

    O meu amante tem humor
    Ela é o riso de um funeral
    Conhece a desaprovação de todos
    Devia tê-la venerado mais cedo
    Se os Céus alguma vez falassem
    Ela é a última verdadeira porta-voz
    Cada domingo está a ficar mais sombrio
    Um veneno fresco todas as semanas
    "Nascemos doentes", ouviu-os dizer
    A minha igreja não oferece absolutos
    Ela diz-me: "Adoração no quarto".
    O único Céu para onde serei enviado
    É quando estou sozinho contigo
    Nasci doente, mas adoro-o
    Comanda-me que esteja bem
    A-, Ámen, Ámen, Ámen, Ámen
    Leve-me à igreja
    Vou adorar como um cão no santuário das tuas mentiras
    Contar-te-ei os meus pecados e poderás afiar a tua faca
    Ofereça-me aquela morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixa-me dar-te a minha vida
    Leve-me à igreja
    Vou adorar como um cão no santuário das tuas mentiras
    Contar-te-ei os meus pecados e poderás afiar a tua faca
    Ofereça-me aquela morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixa-me dar-te a minha vida
    Se eu sou um pagão dos bons tempos
    O meu amante é a luz do sol
    Para manter a deusa do meu lado
    Ela exige um sacrifício
    Drenar todo o mar
    Obter algo brilhante
    Algo carnívoro para o prato principal
    É um cavalo alto com bom aspecto
    O que tem no estábulo?
    Temos muitos fiéis famintos
    Que parece saboroso
    Isso parece bastante
    Este é um trabalho faminto
    Leve-me à igreja
    Vou adorar como um cão no santuário das tuas mentiras
    Contar-te-ei os meus pecados para que possas afiar a tua faca
    Oferecer-me a minha morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixa-me dar-te a minha vida
    Leve-me à igreja
    Vou adorar como um cão no santuário das tuas mentiras
    Contar-te-ei os meus pecados para que possas afiar a tua faca
    Oferecer-me a minha morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixa-me dar-te a minha vida
    Sem mestres ou reis quando o ritual começa
    Não há inocência mais doce do que o nosso gentil pecado
    Na loucura e no solo daquela triste cena terrena
    Só então eu sou humano
    Só então estou limpo
    Oh, oh, Ámen, Ámen, Ámen, Ámen
    Leve-me à igreja
    Vou adorar como um cão no santuário das tuas mentiras
    Contar-te-ei os meus pecados e poderás afiar a tua faca
    Ofereça-me aquela morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixa-me dar-te a minha vida
    Leve-me à igreja
    Vou adorar como um cão no santuário das tuas mentiras
    Contar-te-ei os meus pecados e poderás afiar a tua faca
    Ofereça-me aquela morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixa-me dar-te a minha vida

      @Milner62 I think it’s more as a disguise as when this song came out the society was even more homophobic then now , and the artist used words in a way that when you truly know what the song is for you can see it. An example would be the line , “ I was born sick “

    honestly so so sorry to anyone who has ever faced discrimination because of who they love.

    I'm sorry you have to fight for your love.
    I'm sorry you have to hide your feelings.
    I'm sorry people are mean.
    I'm sorry this world sucks.
    But we need better.
    We want better.
    We deserve better.
    And we will get better.

      @krainzyrumie okay and? that doesn't change the fact that every day people are fucking murdered in cold blood and beaten and treated like shit, just because they love someone that society doesn't agree with. Pride month isn't to celebrate being gay or to force it down people's throats, it's to celebrate how far along we've come with being accepted and to bring awareness to the fact that people are still highly discriminated against for who they love, and to let people be proud of who they are, instead of feeling like they have to hide it, like most people do the rest of the year. Pride month isn't a privilege and it most certainly doesn't make up for the discrimination.

      @bhm012 I'm sorry that you had to go through heartache and pain during not only an exciting time but also confusing and scary time in our development as adolescence. It's frightening enough as a heterosexual. I can only imagine. My daughter came out and told me when she was 14. She's now married to her wife of a little over a year. I'm incredibly proud of the partner. Mother. Daughter and all around Woman she has become. Blessings. 🙏🌈😁

    As igrejas deviam acolher as pessoas sem julgamento, cuidar dos vulneráveis
    Mas a maioria só ama o próximo, mas aquele próximo que frequenta a mesa religião
    Alguns amam a todos não importa a religião, a sexualidade ou o que quer que seja
    Um templo de acolhimento não é um templo pra julgamento

    Powerful. Regardless of the word “church”, ..this is someone’s life, and this is how they viewed it as it was happening.
    This has nothing to do with “ higher power” it’s about being heard.
    It can be taken in different ways..not just what your viewing in this video.
    Truth. What we want others to see & what we are tired of hiding.
    Fine line for sure.

      Video's are just video's when it comes to music video's. It's just the directors vision of art and meant to entertain the viewer while listening to the music. Also today directors get bonus points for putting homosexual stuff into their video's or films. Just about every show has to have a gay couple now because of it. She is mentioned many times in the lyrics so the song is obviously about a woman. The song is nothing more than a man's lament in what is involved in loving a woman. In short she wants lots of things, and he just wants to roll in the dirt with her.

      ContacterYin thx. Indeed, it seems that the homophobia issue is one of the things he had in mind writing this song. But if you read all what he says there, as well as in other sources (for example, there is a page about this song in wikipedia), it becomes clear that his message was much broader.
      For example "Growing up, I always saw the hypocrisy of the Catholic church," Hozier said in an interview with Rolling Stone. "The history speaks for itself and I grew incredibly frustrated and angry. I essentially just put that into my words."
      I think that the message of this song is indeed much broader than just about gay rights. But the gay issue is much easier to sell, because it is political. And if everybody asks only about the gay part of the content, surely he answers only about it.

      Vasilis Roumeliotis, the problem is not that it is about leftist politics, the problem is that it is about politics at all. Nowadays it is hard to watch a movie or listen to a song without being lectured on some shit.

    [Verse 1]
    My lover's got humor
    She's the giggle at a funeral
    Knows everybody's disapproval
    I should've worshipped her sooner
    If the heavens ever did speak
    She's the last true mouthpiece
    Every Sunday's getting more bleak
    A fresh poison each week
    "We were born sick"
    You heard them say it
    My church offers no absolutes
    She tells me "Worship in the bedroom"
    The only Heaven I'll be sent to
    Is when I'm alone with you
    I was born sick, but I love it
    Command me to be well
    [Pre-Chorus]
    Aaa, Amen, Amen, Amen
    [Chorus]
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    [Verse 2]
    If I'm a pagan of the good times
    My lover's the sunlight
    To keep the goddess on my side
    She demands a sacrifice
    Drain the whole sea
    Get something shiny
    Something meaty for the main course
    That's a fine looking high horse
    What you got in the stable?
    We've a lot of starving faithful
    That looks tasty
    That looks plenty
    This is hungry work
    [Chorus]
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me my deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me my deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    [Bridge]
    No masters or kings when the ritual begins
    There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
    In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
    Only then I am human
    Only then I am clean
    [Pre-Chorus]
    Oh, oh Amen, Amen, Amen
    [Chorus]
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life
    Take me to church
    I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life

      @Ninja1Ninja2 Not necessarily a 'gay pride song', more a song about the harm religion can cause.

    • Ninja1Ninja2
      Ninja1Ninja2 7 tahun yang lalu

      The lyrics made me think this was about a guy obsessed with his girlfriend but thought she was cheating on him. It being a gay pride song kind of makes sense too.

      I can see by your hashtag and your demeanor that you are looking for a debate that will ultimately end with me standing my ground and you standing yours with no resolve in the end to agree to disagree so let's go ahead and skip to that part. I'm not trying to convince you that either one of us, or anyone for that matter, is right or wrong but that we have the right to be both and still love on the same rock peacefully. Asking me to validate something written over 2000 years ago is impossible. I have believed in God all my life yet I understand a small fraction. It works for me man, plain and simple. All men are created equal, meaning at conception and birth. It's our choices that define us. If more people would stop making a professional career out of being offended and just enjoy life then things would be much easier. Just my opinion bro, not a guideline or law.

    I came here after watching "Heartstopper", not for a specific reason, I just wanted to hear something with a deep meaning. and giving a listen to this masterpiece has just brought me a tons of feelings, because yes, I've been so discriminated just as the guys on the series, and I, we all have had to fight so hard to earn a spot in this cruel society that only seems to hear the ones who are "normal", I wish nothing of this had happened , I mean, the discrimination for those who perceive life in a whole different way. But now I understand it better, watching this video has made me get it straighter, I'm not here to please or fit into this society, I'm here to live, to have a happy life, no matter what!
