Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

418. We Are Climbing Jacob's Ladder

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.
