Searching for lyrics - I Saw The Face of Jesus, We Are Climbing Jacob's Ladder

I am searching for the lyrics to the song "I Saw The Face of Jesus"... it was written by Glen Alred of The Florida Boys. Also, a friend from church is looking for the lyrics to "We Are Climbing Jacob's Ladder". Please help, if you can!

Hi Carolynm,

Here is the Florida Boys rendition

  I Saw The Face Of Jesus

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6hBJ2EawC8


Chorus
"¨I saw the face of Jesus,"¨
so real was the smile that He wore.
I dreamed I had crossed chilly Jordan
and stood on that heavenly shore.

I know that man cannot imagine
what the Lord has prepared in glory land.
"¨But I caught a glimpse in a vision
of that city not made by hands.

and here is another verse that has been recorded

I looked beyond this veil of sorrow
and I saw Jesus there in bridal array
I saw the light shine all around Him
in that city of unending days

Hi PeterRabbit

I am concerned as to your level of frustration.
I think it would be marvelous to make a point of sussing out the original authors
and going forward we will be including that information when ever possible

As to this particular request
The writer of I Saw The Face Of Jesus is acknowledged in the Jan 11, 2009 post as Glen Alred
The Mar 19, 2016 referral in our archives for Jacob's Ladder notes that it is an African-American spiritual

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Nancy
