Jacob's Ladder

Jacob's Ladder

l. We are climbing Jacob's ladder (3x)
     Soldiers of the cross (brothers, sisters all)
2.  Every round goes higher,higher
3.  Sinners do you love your Jesus?
4.  If you love him, why not serve him?
5.  Rise, shine, give God the glory.
6.  We are climbing higher, higher

New chorus by Pete Seeger, In Allen (et al) Slave Songs
of the US, l867, Pilgrims Hymnal, Friends Hymnal, and other

note: In the 1930's this was used as a union rallying song, with the
     chorus, "Workers of the South"
