                City On A Hill
Casting Crowns

Verse 1:

	Bm		        D
Did you hear of the city on the hill?
      A                    G
Said one old man to the other
		Bm	                      D
It once shined bright and it would be shining still
		      A		    G
But they all started turning on each other

Verse 2:

	      Bm		                     D
You see, the poets thought the dancers were shallow
	A				G
And the soldiers thought the poets were weak
	Bm                              D
And the elders saw the young ones as foolish
	A			G
And the rich man never heard the poor man speak

Chorus:

	   G
And one by one
	  D
They ran away
	   A
With their made up minds
	     G
To leave it all behind
	G	       D
And the light began to fade
		   A
In the city on the hill
The city on the hill

Verse 3:
Each one thought that they knew better
That they were different by design
Instead of standing strong together
They let their differences divide

Passage:

Bm   D   A     G
               And the world is searching still
Bm   D   A

Bridge:

		G
But it was the rhythm of the dancers
That gave the poets life
	    D
It was the spirit of the poets
		A
That gave the soldiers strength to fight
	   G
It was the fire of the young ones
	   Bm
It was the wisdom of the old
	   A
It was the story of the poor man
That needed to be told

Ending:

Bm  	D	A
                Come home
G
	And the Father's calling still
Bm	D	A
                Come home
G
	To the city on the hill
Bm	D	A
                Come home
