Jacob’s ladder, down from heaven
Angels coming up and down
Showing this is holy ground

God stood next to him and answered
“This land will be yours, for your kids
Just like Abraham’s”

Jacob you’re home

I know better than to climb a ladder without a spotter
On the ground making sure I don’t fall down

The Tower of Babel is just a man-made ladder
But God knew better
Jesus the bridge between heaven and earth beneath

Jacob you’re home
