Crying In The Chapel

"You saw me crying in the chapel, the tears I shed were tears of joy;
Stained Glass Window, Freemason Street Baptist Church, Norfolk, VA
I know the meaning of contentment, Now I am happy with the Lord.
Freemason Street Baptist Church
Just a plain and simple chapel, where humble people go to pray;
Stone Oratory, Connemara, Ireland (used for silent prayers by monks during the 5th and 6th centuries)
I pray the Lord that I'll grow stronger, as I live from day to day.
Old Church along the motorway, somewhere in Ireland
I've searched and I've searched, but I couldn't find
Lake at Kylemore Abbey, Ireland
No way on earth to gain peace of mind.
Another church along the byway, Ireland
Now I'm happy in the chapel, where people are of one accord.
Church of the Centurian, Fort Monroe, VA
We gather in the chapel, just to sing and praise the Lord."
Pipe Organ, Freemason Street Baptist Church
I pray that your tears will be tears of joy, happy with your Lord!

Listen to Elvis sing this beautiful old song here: Crying in the Chapel.

Linking to Spiritual Sundays.

What a lovely post, Linda...
«Louis» has long been fascinated with church architecture, but he also appreciates the text you provided along with these photos...

Oh, yes, like Hootin' Anni, «Louis» wonders about your masthead photo. It is quite fine...

Wonderful job, Linda! Beautiful photos, just perfect for the lyrics of that song.
