Rammstein Halleluja lyric with English translation

Er ist fromm und sehr sensibel
an seiner Wand ein Bild des Herrn
er wischt die Flecken von der Bibel
das Abendmahl verteilt er gern

Er liebt die Knaben aus dem Chor
sie halten ihre Seelen rein
doch Sorge macht ihm der Tenor
so muss er ihm am nächsten sein
auf seinem Nachttisch still und stumm
ein Bild des Herrn
er dreht es langsam um

Wenn die Turmuhr zweimal schlägt
halleluja
faltet er die Hände zum Gebet
halleluja
er ist ohne Weib geblieben
halleluja
so muss er seinen Nächsten lieben
halleluja

Der junge Mann darf bei ihm bleiben
die Sünde nistet überm Bein
so hilft er gern sie auszutreiben
bei Musik und Kerzenschein

Wenn die Turmuhr zweimal schlägt
halleluja
faltet er die Hände zum Gebet
halleluja
er ist ohne Weib geblieben
halleluja
so muss er seinen Nächsten lieben
halleluja

Wenn die Turmuhr zweimal schlägt
halleluja
nimmt er den Jungen ins Gebet
halleluja
er ist der wahre Christ
halleluja
und weiß, was Nächstenliebe ist
halleluja

Dreh dich langsam um
dreh dich um
He is religious and very sensitive
on his wall is a picture of the Lord
he wipes the spots from the Bible
he gladly distributes the Communion

He loves the boys in the choir
they keep their souls pure
but the tenor worries him
so he must be the closest to him
on his nightstand, quiet and wordless
a picture of the Lord
he slowly turns it around

When the church clock strikes twice
hallelujah
he folds his hands for prayer
hallelujah
he has remained without a wife
hallelujah
so he must love his neighbor
hallelujah

The young man is allowed to stay with him
the sin nests above the leg
so he gladly helps to exorcize it
to music and candlelight

When the church clock strikes twice
hallelujah
he folds his hands for prayer
hallelujah
he has remained without a wife
hallelujah
so he must love his neighbor
hallelujah

When the church clock strikes twice
hallelujah
he takes the boy into his prayers
hallelujah
he is the true Christian
hallelujah
and knows what charity is
hallelujah

Turn around slowly
Turn around

    I wish they would change the lyrics to true catholic not christian!

    • Ryan

      I know catholics call them selves true christians, but I wish they didn’t. Mass confushion between “true christians” and “born again christians”

  • die Madchen

    Interesting lyrics looking into Catholicism.

    Most of the readers on here seem to think Catholics=Christians.

    Couldn’t be farther from the truth. Christian ministers don’t seal themselves off from women. Catholic priests and those in higher rank do. So on and so forth.

    Either way, it was interesting to see the lyrics’ translation and what it actually meant instead of what I imagined when I heard the song.

  • CHRISTOPHER

    Rammstein is twisted.
    Pedophile priests are twisted.
    Rammstein writes songs about twisted people.
    We are twisted because we love it so…

    Maybe Rammstien will write a song about us?

  • Johnny

    Look its simple to understand, Rammstein are not knocking the whole religion they are pointing out that it has its flaws…And for all those of you racists that are just looking for an excuse to insult christianity think of all other religions…None are perfect, more importantly this isn’t the place to post your anti-religious posts… This song is brilliant regardless of what you interpret from it.

  • Mark

    I agree Enchanted Butterfly.
    Mormoms are Cool, I´m not Mormon, but I´d like to do it to have a lot of wives to fuck with =) what is not clear to me is if they allow to fuck them all at the same time, will be great.
    Viva the state of Utah! it´s allowed to have multiple wives there bcs most of the people are Mormons.

    and Catholicism don´t allow to the priests to get married for the simple fact that if they get married, their possesions will belong to their families instead the institution, and if they keep singles, won´t be such a problem, so it´s better to be accused as Paedo´s than lose money 😉

  • Enchanted Butterfly

    This is why I like Mormons, everyone can get married so we don’t have problems with sexually frustrated dudes raping kids! Don’t get me wrong, there are still Mormons that have been excommunicated for rape and murder and all that – we just don’t have THIS problem as much as other Christian religions…

    I LUV RAMMSTEIN!

  • FlaX

    Well Luke, the song isn’t saying that every christian rapes children.. It’s the priests 😉

  • Luke Moroney

    Yes, christians have sexually abused and rapped children, but i doesn’t count for all of them. My mums christian, but she doesn’t rape me. You need to understand that Rammstein do not have more hatred for the christians thn they do friendship. You can’t simply say Fuck the Christians when you don’t know there reasons for belief. If they want to prayto god and live there lives by the book then let them do so, i dont see why i should give a fuck about someone elses buisness. By the way, GO RAMMSTEIN. COME TO ADELAIDE

  • Jerzy

    I cannot get rid of this song from my head.
    I saw them 2 weeks ago in Quebec City. WHAT A CONCERT !

  • Buttsecks

    You guys are retarded. You really think every christian is a dirty paedophile? MAYBE ITS BECAUSE THEM PRIESTS ARENT MARRIED AND HAVE NEVER BEEN LAID AND THEY BECOME PEDOS. If you really think all christians are like that then ur a fuckwit.

  • Charismatic Enigma

    I figure that any real Christian should be disgusted and outraged that such a thing even happens. Just sayin’.

  • Rammstein2314

    Yes the song isabout the preists laying with the choir boys the young man is allowed to stay with him and the sin lies above the knee so he gladly helps to excercise it by music and candle light Christians are sick pervs go to hell

  • Rammspieler

    This song is awesome, although I am Christian and feel a small amount of guilt saying that. I think ‘Hallelujah’ is about the growing number of priests and bishops going against their own word, engaging actively in homosexuality, adultery and paedophilia.

    Excellent band!

    • Brittany Kline

      I am glad to see other Christians saying they like this band. I have known about them since they first came out but just recently have become rather…dare I say “obsessed” with them lol My six year old son loves them, too (although he doesn’t understand the words). Not all their songs are against God or Christianity. They may be against Religion, which I am,too. I am for the faith in God but not following a religion. Does that make sense? Anyway, like I said, good to see other Christians liking this band! ~Brittany.

  • jonathan

    I feel this song is, in some way, relevant these days

  • Mark

    Awesome song!!!

  • Emil

    you don’t get what they mean! use your heads, I think they are talkning about one of those really religious guyz that enjoy the Chor,you know. HAAAAAALEELUJA. And I am christian, being a religious person or not is your personal thing.I dont know if there is heaven but at least i will go there if there is.and the CHRISTIANS DON’T do those sick stuff in the song,that is sick man.But still those sick people exist.AND MEIN HERZ BRRENT is not about nightmares exactly,remember when you were young and you couldn’t sleep cuz of your parents fighting or having a famili problem….guyz you must learn to understand it. Rammstein 4 eva!! FROM BULGARIA!

  • jesterious

  • Clarissa

  • Faruk
