628 ~ As Jacob With Travel Was Weary



1

A 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.


Refrain

Alleluia to Jesus who died on the tree,
And has raised up a ladder of mercy for me,
And has raised up a ladder of mercy for me.


2

For the angels of Jacob are guarding it still:
And remember each step that by faith we pass o'er,
Some prophet or martyr has trod it before.
