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


And one by one
They ran away
With their made up minds
To leave it all behind
	G	       D
And the light began to fade
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


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


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


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