Advent calendar day 6: the chapel

From Tati´s Bible class advent calendar: help lay the table (no, it´s not the same as yesterday, that was taking things off the table and this is putting things on the table. Kids are subtle. Or maybde just a bit lazy and divided the table helping in halves, lol)

Crying in the chapel (Elvis Presley)

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 Ill grow stronger
As I live from day to day

Ive searched and Ive searched
But I couldnt find
No way on earth
To gain peace of mind

Now Im happy in the chapel
Where people are of one accord
We gather in the chapel
Just to sing and praise the lord

Youll search and youll search
But youll 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 youll surely find the way

Our nephew Santiago´s first communion. Happy family gathering. :)
