Take Me to Church is a song by Irish singersongwriter Hozier, released as his debut single on 13 September 2013. It was written by Hozier and produced by Rob Kirwan. The song has been certified multiplatinum in Australia, Canada, Denmark, New Zealand, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In 2014, it was nominated for the Grammy Award for Song of the Year. The song has been described as agospel blues song witha rumbling bass, an insistent organ anda snare that crack[s] like a whip.” The lyrics have been interpreted as a rejection of the Catholic Church‘s teachings on sexuality, and as a call for social and political reform. Hozier has said that the song is not necessarily about the Church, but is instead abouthumanity and how we treat each other.” He has also said that he did not intend for the song to be interpreted as a gay anthem, but that he ishappy if it is seen as such.

Verse 1

[Em] My lover’s got [Am] humour [Em], she’s the giggle at a [Am] funeral [G]
Knows everybody’s disap[Am] proval [Em] I should’ve worshipped her [Am] sooner [Em]
If the Heavens ever [Am] did speak [Em] she is the last true [Am] mouthpiece [G]
Every Sunday’s getting[Am] more bleak [Em] A fresh poison [Am] each [D] week
We were born sick,[C] ‘ you heard them say it [Em]
My church offers no ab-[Am] solutes [Em] She tells me ‘worship in the [Am] bedroom [G]
The only heaven I’ll be [Am] sent to [Em] Is when I’m alone [Am] with [D] you
I was born sick,[C] but I love it command me to be well
[C] A-[G] men,[Cm] A-[G] men, ,[Cm] A-[G] men

Chorus

[E] Take me to [Em] church I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your [B] lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your [G] knife
Offer me that death-[Am] less death
Good [Em] God, let me give you my [Am] life [G] [F#] [Em]
[E] Take me to [Em] church I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your [B] lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your [G] knife
Offer me that death-[Am] less death
Good [Em] God, let me give you my [Am] life [G] [F#] [Em]

Verse 2

[Em] If I’m a pagan of the [Am] good times [Em] my lover’s the [Am] sunlight [G]
To keep the Goddess on [Am] my side [Em] she demands a sacri-[Am] fice [D]
To drain the whole sea [C] get something shiny [Em]
something meaty for the [Am] main course [Em] that’s a fine looking [Am] high horse [G]
What you got in the [Am] stable? [Em] we’ve a lot of starving [Am] faithful [D]
That looks tasty [C] that looks plenty, this is hungry work
Repeat chorus —–

Bridge

[C] No masters [G] or kings when the [B7] ritual be-[Em] gins
There is [C] no sweeter [G] innocence than [B7] our gentle [Em] sin
In the [C] madness and [G] soil of that [B7] sad earthly [Em] scene
Only [C] then I am [G] human
Only [B7] then I am [Em] clean [D] [G] [C]
[C] A-[G] men,[Cm] A-[G] men, ,[Cm] A-[G] men
