Jacob's Vision

Album: The Bluegrass Gospel

Lyrics

CH: Halleluia to Jesus who died on the tree To raise up this ladder of mercy for me

v1) As Jacob was traveling so weary one day At night on a stone for a pillow he lay

v2) A vision appeared of a ladder so high It stood on the ground and its top reached the sky

CHORUS

Race onward, climb upward, the top is in view There’s a crown of bright glory awating for you

v3) This ladder is tall and yet so well made Stood thousands of years and has never decayed

v4) High winds from the heavens they reel and they rock But the angles all guard it from bottom to top

CHORUS

Race onward, climb upward, the top is in view There’s a crown of bright glory awating for you
