Gregory Porter - Take Me To The Alley Lyrics




Well, the guild their houses
In preparation for the King
And the line the sidewalks
With every sort of shiny thing
They will be surprised
When they hear him say

Take me to the alley
Take me to the afflicted ones
Take me to the lonely ones
That somehow lost their ways

Let them hear me say
I am your friend
Come to my table
Rest here in my garden
You will have a pardon

Take me to the alley
Take me to the afflicted ones
Take me to the lonely ones
That somehow lost their ways

Let me hear me say
I am your friend
Come to my table
Rest here in my garden
You will have a pardon
They will be surprised
When the hear him say

Take me the alley
Take me to the afflicted ones
Take me to the lonely ones that
Somehow lost their ways

Let them hear me say
I am your friend
Come to my table
Rest here in my garden
You will have a pardon
You will have a pardon
Take me to the alley
Take me to the afflicted ones
Take me, take me, take me

    This song is so beautiful it bring tears to my eye. I just lost a good friend to brain cancer and his wife is in a way mad. But I think god wants me to share this song with her so that she can understand. This song is simply beautiful in every way. Thank you for sharing this song.

    I always felt that this was a beautiful Jazz song, if that can be but, Jay Robinson explained something that I did not know about Gregory Porter and the history of the song. I have fallen deeper in love with this song because it was so deep BEFORE I knew about Gregory Porter and his wonderful mother!

  17. Sherrel Skillern

    This singer can place your mine in a very smooth jazz or spirtual manner and keep it there. He is the most smootest singer I know. I don't know you know that his mom use to be a pastor. I went to. Hear him sing when he was here in Houston . He will be back in March 2020 don't miss out ok

  66. Michael Davin

    His words are a safety net of hope, we are not alone

  67. Gordon Albert

    I remember when I first heard "Take Me To The Alley." I had to pull off the road and cry. This psalm still impacts me just as strongly as that first time. To me it's lyric is very much a call of the Messiah and invitation to eat from the table of Christ, My Lord, to enjoy a walk with God in the garden of my life. A powerful testament to the commission we have to love, accept and respect every man, woman and child. No exceptions! After all I received the same invitation, I dare not deny anyone the same grace extended to me.

  68. tyeballard71

  89. Midalia Lebron

    I've been struggling with getting my anger under control lately but it is something I must do now before I end up dead or hurt. Seriously. I have a history of child abuse and that's what abuse does to a child that grows up to be an adult. I'm so happy to have finally found a solution. Whenever I get upset or angry, I listen to this song 5 times and I'm peaceful again; able to go on another day to try again when I fall short. God bless this man and his voice that touches us so. Thank you Gregory.

  90. Holladay Cummings

    There is a way to articulate the idea of how to love the afflicted and all those who need love.  Is this not what God asked, come to my table.

  91. H I

  93. MasterWuWei

    Might sound a bit weird to say and must might not understand.......but his voice makes me feel like it's perfectly ok being a real man and to rest in it

  94. Sally Nelson

    One of my favourites. I am learning to appreciate Gregory without forcing him on my friends....but sometimes I just can't help but send around a track...😏
