The Happy Goodmans - Looking For A City Lyrics


Words: W Oliver Cooper Music: Marvin P Dalton (1943)

(With strangers) We're a band of pilgrims on the move;
(Thru dangers) Burdened down with sorrows,
(And we're) shunned on every hand;
(But we are) Looking for a city built above.

Looking for a city, Yonder where we'll never die,
(And up) There the sainted millions,
(We will) Never say goodbye;
(Yes, and) There we'll meet our Savior,
And our loved ones too,
(Now we) Pray, Come, O Holy Spirit,
All our hopes renew.

(And earthly) friends no longer speak one word of love;
(But truly) We have found contentment, (Jesus) promised us a home,
(So we) Are looking for a city built above.

(We're simply) trusting in the blessed Savior's love;
(And mercy) tho' we may be strangers, (Living) In this world of care,
(We're always) Looking for a city built above.
