Crying in the Chapel

You saw me crying in the cha (C) pel,
But my tears were tears of (G) joy.
I know the meaning (E7) of content (A7) ment,
(D7) Now I'm (A7) happy (Am7) with the (G) Lord.

Just a plain and simple cha (C) pel,
Were humble people go to (G) pray.
I pray the Lord that (E7) I'll grow (A7) stronger,
(D7) As I (A7) live from (Am7) day to (G) day.

Bridge 1:

I've (G7) sear (C) ched and I've (Cm) searched,
But (G) I could (E7) n't (A7) find,
No (Em7) way on earth to (A7) gain peace of (D7) mind.

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

Bridge 2:

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 lifted,
And you will surely find the way.
