Crying in the Chapel
Elvis Presley Lyrics


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 bumble people go to pray
I prayed the Lord that I'll grow stronger
As I live from day to day
I searched (I searched) and I searched (I 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 (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 the way (and you'll surely find the way)

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 give 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 give 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

Crying in the chapel

(words & music by Arthur Glenn)

You saw me crying in the chapel.
The tears I shed 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
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
Your burdens will be lighter
And you’ll surely find the way

@icebreaker19631 Dear Icebreaker19631.
Thank you for your personal story and kind wishes.
Actually, i have NO problem , as you asked.
Your take on me as an atheist is incorrect. I am Jewish . According to Judaism, jesus is not a messiah or one to be worshiped as a deity. Nowhere in the Hebrew Scriptures aka Tanakh is his name mentioned or alluded to. Judaism believes that G-D is ONE, not a trinity. So, i am very, very comfortable and supportive 1,000%+ in my belief system. For myself and most Jews, the new testament narratives are not the words of G-D, thereby rendering it mute and meaningless. Sorry if this may offend you.
One day, when the real messiah comes , the whole world will know and accept him. Up until now, he has not come . And no, he's not jesus.
Have a wonderful day/evening.

@Jesse Dylan what is your problem? I take it your an atheist if so you be you! But like most when it's time to meet your maker (dieing or slowly dieing) most everyone even atheists begin to pray and plead to Jesus as well as his father God. If not like I said you be you but you may realize that the pain or fear of dieing make many turn to their God or at the least they pray! I have seen it a many of times and this is coming from someone who leaned on the scientific side of things and needed stats and graphs and figures to back up most things in life. Now this is coming from a person that most of my immediate family was pastors Reverend gospel singers Sunday school teachers and myself went to church more days per week than I didn't but I from seeing pastors and reverends and Bishops telling dirty jokes to infidelity to adultery and in the words of Swaggart I have sinned against you and we also learned it so many of them were in the business of preaching the gospel for nothing more than the money and they raked it in and that's the sad part same thing with Christmas how it's so commercialized and it's all about the money like most things in life unfortunately. That being said I have grown back toward the gospel the Bible have read it I have also looked into most other religions in red the Quran Buddhist Catholic so on and so forth. I am glad that I figured away to feel the presence and the word of the Bible has grabbed a hold of me again and has fulfilled my soul and more ways than one. Now most will say in most of experienced life is not fair you don't understand what God's plan is or for that matter anybody's but I have seen things that you would not believe I came home when I was only 16 to find my mother had passed away few years ago my brother died right in front of me and I've had other friends that they were actually supposed to come home from the hospital they were doing so well and all the sudden this person started talking to someone and looking toward the corner of the room and I'm telling you this person had a glow all of a sudden about them they were smiling and happy and they died within an hour of that and they were happy because they knew they were going home to the Pearly Gates to see their God and speaking of dying I have been there and done that and have been brought back on more than one occasion I don't think I would have been able to make those come back if it wasn't for my belief my witness and so many other factors. So you have a good life I hope you find something to believe in a god but most of all to believe and have faith at some point in some time in your life before it's too late. You have a good day and peace be with you all!

Personal faith matters not. The conviction in Elvis' voice is more than enough.
One of his best vocal performances, hands down. I adore this.
