General Information

Title: Jacob's Ladder Welcome
Composer: Sarah Lambert

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB

First published: 2014
Description: I have modified the traditional Jacob's Ladder hymn, to create a song about compassion for Refugees and Asylum Seekers. It was sung as part of a Mass Choir finale at a Refugee Week concert 20/6/14 held Wollongong. Previously this song has been modified to become a powerful union song, "We are Building a Strong Union." Sarah Lambert, Music Director, Illawarra Union Singers

Fathers love their families
Sail across the sea

Mothers love their families
Sail across the sea

Flee the war and flee the killing
Sail across the sea

Welcome father, Welcome mothers,
Welcome Sisters, Welcome Brothers
Welcome children in your boats,
Sailed across the sea.
