Ground of Grace

"And he [Jacob] dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.  And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said... in thy Seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed" (Genesis 28:12-14).  "In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and He heard me. Deliver my soul, O LORD"  (Psalm 120:1,2).  "The curse causeless shall not come" (Proverbs 26:2). "I thank my God... for the grace of God" (1 Corinthians 1:4). 

Behold this ladder on the ground,
Of which the patriarch has dreamed,
Portrays grace from heaven found
In Christ for those He has redeemed. 

We see it reaches heaven's place
Where God has answered our distress   
By sending Christ with saving grace
For sinners cursed whom He would bless. 

How wonderful this ladder is
Depicting Jesus Christ our Savior
With angels bearing all of His
To heaven's door of endless favor!   

Lord, thank for so great salvation  
That blesses sinners who were cursed. 
The ground of grace has its foundation
In You because You loved us first.
