1 We are climbing Jacob’s ladder;
we are climbing Jacob’s ladder,
we are climbing Jacob’s ladder;
soldiers of the cross.

2 Every round goes higher, higher;
every round goes higher, higher,
every round goes higher, higher;
soldiers of the cross.

3 Sinner, do you love my Jesus?
Sinner, do you love my Jesus?
Sinner, do you love my Jesus?
Soldiers of the cross.

4 If you love him, why not serve him?
If you love him, why not serve him?
If you love him, why not serve him?
Soldiers of the cross.

5 We are climbing higher, higher;
we are climbing higher, higher,
we are climbing higher, higher;
soldiers of the cross.
