[C]You saw me crying in the ch[F]apel,
the tears I shed were tears of j[C]oy;
I know the meaning of con[D7]tentment,
[G7]now I am happy with the Lo[C]rd.[F] [C]
Just a plain and simple ch[F]apel,
where humble people go to pr[C]ay;
I pray the Lord that I'll grow str[D7]onger,
[G7]as I live from day to [C]day.[F] [C]
I've se[F]arched and I've searched but [C]I couldn't find
n[D7]o way on earth to gain peace of m[G7]ind.
Now I'm happy in the cha[F]pel,
were people are of one acc[C]ord;
We gather in the cha[D7]pel,
[G7]just to sing and praise the [C]Lord.[F] [C]
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.
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.
