City On the Hill - Casting Crowns

Written by:Mark Hall/Matthew West

Did you hear of the city on the hill

 

Said one old man to the other

It once shined bright and it would be shining still

 

But they all started turning on each other

 

You see the poets thought the dancers were shallow

And the soldiers thought the poets were weak

 

And the elders saw the young ones as foolish

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

As the light began to fade in the city on the hill

 

The city on the hill

 

Each one thought that they knew better

But they were different by design

 

Instead of standing strong together

 

They let their differences divide

 

One by one they ran away

 

With their made up minds to leave it all behind

As the light began to fade in the city on the hill

 

The city on the hill

 

And the world is searching still

 

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

 

It is the rhythm of the dancers

That gives the poets life

 

It is the spirit of the poets

That gives the soldiers strength to fight

 

It is the fire of the young ones

It is the wisdom of the old

 

It is the story of the poor man

 

That's needing to be told

 

One by one will we run away

 

With our made up minds to leave it all behind

As the light begins to fade in the city on the hill

 

One by one will we run away

 

With our made up minds to leave it all behind

As the light begins to fade in the city on the hill

 

The city on the hill

 

Come home

 

And the Father's calling still

 

Come home to the city on the hill

 

Come home
