The Sacrament
by HIM

Album: Love Metal (2003)
Charted: 23
  • This is about a vow that 2 people take when they fall in love and commit to each other. The song talks about a church, and how it is not made of flashy or glamorous objects, but of love: "Its commandments are of consolation and warmth." The chorus discusses how their sacrament will never fail; his sacrament is her. In the second verse he talks about how his prayers are not enough to heal his pain, and that this world has led her to believe the wrong things in life. >>
