Floating Ladder

There’s a floating ladder standing here on Earth I don’t know where it goes but it holds a song I jump on the first rung, amazing as birth The ladder jerks, moves up, and takes me along The ladder now flies to the heavens, so high Not knowing where it is taking me, nor why I reach the highest point, a faraway star This is where Jesus lays, beauty from afar
