You saw me crying in the chapel
The tears I she'd 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.
Every sinner looks for something
That will put his heart at ease.
There is only one true answer
He must get down on his knees.
You'll search and you'll search, but you'll never find
No way on earth to find 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 a way...
