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."
