"Crying In The Chapel" as written by and Artie Glenn....
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

    General CommentI love this song!

    -Just a plain and simple chapel (Chapels do not have to be super decorated and over the top, in fact simplicity is where the spirit of God is most, not where the eye is distracted with the wordly appearance, no offense to any church but I don't find the spirit of God where there is too much fancy)
    -Where humble people go to pray (humility! I found myself, I only feel the spirit of God when there are humble people in a room/ a church, just saying this by experience).
    I love how this song describes the real meaning of praising God. You might as well pray in a cave than in a building full of fancy and distraction!

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me, because I have experienced being in chapels that are plain and yet, the feeling so special, where everyone is of one accord and where you feel peace of mind.
    This is the place where we gain strength, and hope to overcome the things we have to overcome in life, rather than thinking we can overcome on our own or have to be perfect. The light that we receive in church, is like the petrol we need in a car. God's light is our strength, we do not have to struggle or walk on our own.
    Thank you Artie Glenn for writing this beautiful inspired song! Thank you Elvis for singing so beautifully!
