Lyrics
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 Ill grow stronger
As I live from day to day

Ive searched and Ive searched
But I couldnt find
No way on earth
To gain peace of mind

Now Im happy in the chapel
Where people are of one accord
We gather in the chapel
Just to sing and praise the lord

Evry 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
Youll know the meaning of contentment
Then youll be happy with the lord

Youll search and youll search
But youll 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 youll surely find the way
