"City On The Hill"

Capo: 3

Key: D



Intro: Bm, D, A, G, Bm, D, A

VERSE 1:
         Bm                    D
Did you hear of the city on the hill?
          A                   G
Said the 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

Bm, D, A

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            D
And one by one they ran away
            A                         Em
With their made up minds to leave it all behind
          G              D                   A
And the light began to fade in the city on a hill
               Bm
The city on a hill

D, A, G

VERSE 3:
            Bm                    D
Each one thought that they knew better
                  A           G
But there were different by design
             Bm              D
Instead of standing strong together
                  A          G
They let their differences divide

CHORUS 2:
            G            D
And one by one they ran away
            A                        Em
With their made up minds to leave it all behind
          G             D                     A
And the light began to fade in the city on a hill

Bm   D   A
The city on a hill
         Em                  Bm     D      A
And the world is searchin' still



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

Bm, D, A, G, Bm, D, A



CHORUS 3:
        G                D
One by one, will we run away?
          A                         Em
With our made up minds to leave it all behind
         G              D                     A
As the light begins to fade in the city on a hill?
               Bm    
The city on a hill

D

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

About the artist behind City On The Hill Chords:

Casting Crowns is a Grammy award and Dove Award winning Christian band that employs a soft rock music style. The band was created in 1999 by youth pastor Mark Hall at First Baptist Church in Downtown Daytona Beach, Florida as part of a Youth Group. He also serves as a lead vocalist. Later they moved to McDonough, Georgia and more members joined creating the band now known as Casting Crowns. Some members of the band currently work as ministers for Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia.

Discovered by, among others, contemporary Christian music legend Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns received a recording contract and vaulted to popularity in 2003 with their self-titled debut album Casting Crowns. The album quickly made them one of the fastest selling debut artists in Christian music history. Lifesong followed in 2005, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Both albums have been certified Platinum. The band's third album The Altar and the Door debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and #1 on the Hot Christian Albums chart upon its release in August of 2007. Ten weeks after it came out it was certified Gold.

Casting Crowns has enjoyed tremendous success in the United States. They have released eight singles to date, seven of which have become consecutive number one hits on various Christian music charts.
