Crying In The Chapel (Digitally Remastered) - Lyrics

Crying In the Chapel

- also charted in 1953 by June Valli (#4), Darrell Glenn (#6), Rex Allen (#8),
Ella Fitzgerald (#15), and Art Lund (#23)
- also charted in 1965 by Elvis Presley (#3) and Adam Wade (#88)

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

Just a plain and simple chapel
Where all good people go to pray
I prayed the Lord that I'll grow stronger
As I live from day to day

I searched and I searched but I couldn't find
No way on earth to find peace of mind

Now I'm happy in the chapel
Where people are of one accord
Yes, we gather in the chapel
Just to sing and praise the Lord

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
Then your burdens will be lighter
And you'll surely find a way

Writer(s): Artie Glenn
