THE LADDER OF MERCY




As Jacob, when weary, sought rest by the way,
His head on a stone, for a pillow, he lay;
A vision appeared of a ladder, so high
|: It stood on the earth while its top reached the sky. :|

Hallelujah to Jesus who died on the tree
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me,
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me.


Upon this bright ladder sweet angels of love
Are bearing our prayers to the Father above,
And swiftly descending the rounds of pure gold,
|: Bring down to poor sinners his blessing untold. :|

Hallelujah to Jesus who died on the tree
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me,
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me.


This wonderful ladder is strong and well-made,
Has stood for long ages; 'twill ne'er be decayed;
So freely 'tis given, the world might ascend,
|: And sing hallelujahs that never shall end. :|

Hallelujah to Jesus who died on the tree
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me,
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me.


This ladder is Jesus, true God and true man,
Whose blood richly flowing from Calvary ran
In streams of salvation, so full and so free
|: And Jesus the Saviour says, look unto me. :|

Hallelujah to Jesus who died on the tree
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me,
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me.


Our fathers upon it have mounted to God,
They've finished their labors, and reached their abode,
And we're climbing after, and soon we'll be there,
|: To join with the ransomed, their happiness share. :|

Hallelujah to Jesus who died on the tree
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me,
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me.


We'll see our dear Saviour, and join the glad throng
In singing his praises in rapturous song;
All glory to God, to the Father and Son,
|: And blest Holy Spirit, united in one. :|

Hallelujah to Jesus who died on the tree
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me,
To raise up this ladder of mercy for me.
