“Looking For A City” – Gaither Homecoming At Studio C, Gaither Studios, Alexandria, Indiana (1999)

Are you looking forward to that day when we will live with the Lord Jesus for all eternity? Of course, it takes faith to believe it. We need to understand that all of today’s stuff including this whole Earth will be burned with fire! And then a new heaven and a new earth will descend from above and life will be forever! A life of bliss for all those who can make it. Let’s be steadfast and live our life for God.

The Gaither Vocal Band was founded in the early ’80s by renowned Christian music leader Bill Gaither. GVB became one of America’s leading southern gospel vocal groups. While Bill Gaither remained the only original member of the ensemble, many well-regarded CCM/gospel singers have passed through the band’s ranks, including Russ Taff, Guy Penrod, Wes Hampton, Michael English, Mark Lowry, and David Phelps. Today, the Gaither Vocal Band roster is comprised of five power-packed voices, including Bill Gaither, Wes Hampton, Adam Crabb, Todd Suttles and Reggie Smith.

Looking For A City Lyrics

Song by Bill & Gloria Gaither

Here among the shadows in a lonely land
We’re a band of pilgrims on the move;
Burdened down with sorrows, shunned on every hand
Looking for a city built above

Looking for a city, where we’ll never die
There the sainted millions, never say good-by
There we’ll meet our Savior, and our loved ones too
Come O Holy Spirit, all our hopes renew

Here in disappointment we so sadly roam
Friends no longer speak one word of love;
O we have found contentment, Jesus promised us a home
And I’m looking for a city built above

We’re looking for a city, where we’ll never die
There the sainted millions, never say good-by
There we’ll meet our Savior, and our loved ones too
Come O Holy Spirit, all our hopes renew

In this land of dangers going here and there
Trusting in the blessed Saviors love;
Tho’ we may be strangers, in this world of care
Looking for a city built above

We’re looking for a city, where we’ll never die
There the sainted millions, never say good-by
There we’ll meet our Savior, and our loved ones too
Come O Holy Spirit, all our hopes renew

Come O Holy Spirit, all our hopes renew
