Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Scored for Piano, SATB Choir

This haunting portrayal of Calvary focuses on the soldiers as they wager for Jesus’ robe, hear Him take His final breath, and stand in silent wonder at the cross. The traditional spiritual "Jacob’s Ladder" brilliantly establishes the somber mood while moving the agonizing story forward, scene by scene. The vocals are simple, lending clarity and drama to the text, and the sparse yet artful accompaniment perfectly complements the whole. (From the cantata "Come, Touch the Robe." SATB – 55/1123L; SAB – 55/1124L.)
