You saw me crying in the chapel,
the tears I shed were tears of joy.
I know the meaning of contentment,
now I'm 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 coudn't find,
the way on earth
to gain peace of mind.

Now I'm happy in the chapel,
where people are on one accord.
Yes, 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.
Then your burdens will be lighter,
and you'll surely find the way.
