Jacob’s Ladder


Jacob’s ladder led right through the stars

Passing all the planets, like Saturn and Mars

There were angels going up and also coming down

From God’s house over there, in heaven’s town


There were buildings all covered in shining gold

And people who lived there never grew old

The lakes and rivers came from crystal wells

And dazzles of light from sparkling jewels


Although in a dream this stairway was seen

Jacob thought hard about what it might mean

He knew that he was protected from high up above

So he made a promise that ‘God would be his God!’
