     10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran. 11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. 12 And he 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. 13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; 14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

     16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.(KJV)

Hymn: WS 778:
Grace Has a Thrilling Sound

1. Grace has a thrilling sound  
To each believer’s ear;  
That peace with God through Christ is found  
Is news I gladly hear.  
Grace first devised the way  
To save our fallen race;  
The Father sent His only Son  
Who came to take our place. 

2. Grace first inscribed my name  
In God’s eternal book,  
And grace has brought me to the Lamb,  
Who all my sorrows took.  
Grace led my wand’ring feet  
To tread the heav’nly road,  
And grace supplies each hour I meet  
While pressing on to God. 

3. Grace taught my soul to pray  
And made my eyes o’erflow;  
His grace has kept me to this day  
And will not let me go. Grace 
all our Work shall crown  
Through everlasting days;  
The heav’nly home God gives His own  
Shall echo with our praise.
