Church Lyrics

Share this post

Unless you've been living in a bomb shelter for the last year, you've probably heard Hozier's "Take Me to Church" at some point on the radio. Surprising as it may seem, this is not the first time that a pop act has sung about church or Jesus or anything related. Read on, brave rocker, if you think you might be able to identify these ten songs that also deal with the House of God in some way. Good luck, and may God have mercy on your soul.
