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)

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

자낳토끼

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.

제가 예배당에서 우는 것을 당신은 보셨지요
제가 흘린 눈물은 기쁨의 눈물이었어요.
나는 만족이라는 말의 뜻을 깨달았어요.
이제 나는 주님과 함께 행복해요.

Just a plain and simple chapel
Where humble people come to pray
I prayed the Lord that I'll grow stronger
As I live from day to day.

소박한 사람들이 기도하러 오는
그저 평범하고 검소한 예배당.
제가 하루하루 살아가는 동안
제가 더욱 강건하게 되도록 주님께 기도드렸습니다.

I've searched and I've searched.
But I couldn't find no way on earth
to gain peace of my mind.

저는 찾고 또 찾아 왔어요.
하지만 제 마음의 평화를 얻는 길을
전혀 찾을 수 없었어요.

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

사람들의 마음이 모두 하나로 일치되어있는
예배당에서 저는 지금 행복해요.
주님을 찬미하고 예찬하고자
우리들은 예배당에 모여요.

You'll search and you'll search
But you'll never find no way on earth
to gain peace of mind.

사람들은 찾고 또 찾겠지요
하지만 마음의 평화를 얻을 길을
결코 찾을 수 없을 거예요.

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.

당신의 모든 걱정거리를 예배당에 가져
오시고 무릎꿇고 기도 드리세요.
당신의 짐이 가벼워 질 것이며
마음의 평화를 얻는 길을 꼭 찾을 거예요.

This is my dad's favorite song. He wants it played at his funeral.

why wait till we die for favorite songs (i'll have a Wake & invite people while living*, for i won't have a funeral.) get him cd & play for his (every) bday.

*(like that asian drama (forgot it's name, if anyone knows it, let me know?) though that grandma didn't let them know it was a living Wake not a death/funeral, lol, from crying to joy instantly.)

@Charlie Sybert "Vinyl" my friend.

Charlie Sybert

@Hector Torrez wtf where did that come from

Hector Torrez

Wouldn't your father be the boss of American Century Records by any chance?

Charlie Sybert

Let's hope it's a long way down the road
