As Jacob With Travel Was Weary One Day

Melody -

1. As Jacob with travel was weary one day,
At night on a stone for a pillow he lay;
He saw in a vision a ladder so high,
That its foot was on earth, and its top in the sky:

Alleluya to Jesus, who died on the tree,
And,hath raised up a ladder of mercy for me,
And hath raised up a ladder of mercy for me.
  2. This ladder is long, it is strong and well made,
Has stood hundreds of years and is not yet decayed;
Many millions have climbed it and reached Sion's hill,
And thousands by faith are climbing it still:

3. Come let us ascend! all may climb it who will;
For the angels of Jacob are guarding it still:
And remember, each step that by faith we pass o er,
Some prophet or martyr hath trod it before:
