Crying in the chapel

You saw me crying in the chapel
The tears I shed were tears of joy
I know the meaning of contentment
Now I am happy with the Lord.

Just a plain and simple chapel
Where humble people go to pray
I pray the Lord that I'll grow stronger,
as I live from day to day.

I've searched and I've searched
But I couldn't find
No way on earth
to gain peace of mind.

Now I'm happy in the chapel,
where people are of one accord
We gather in the chapel
just to sing and praise the Lord.

Ev'ry sinner looks for something
That will put his heart at ease
There is only one true answer
He must get down on his knees.

Meet your neighbor in the chapel
Join with him in tears of joy
You'll know the meaning of contentment
Then you'll be happy with the Lord.

You'll search and you'll search
But you'll never find
No way on earth
To gain peace of mind.

Take your troubles to the chapel
Get down on your knees and pray
Your burdens will be lighter,
and you'll surely find the way.
