• There is a stairway into the sky
    As far up as the eye can see
    Not a plane, or a jet, or a rocket can see it's top
    No matter how high they fly

    Made of pearl and gold
    It's steps shine bright as the sun
    An ivory rail inlaid with precious jewels runs along the stair
    And it's surface is warm not cold

    The stairway into Heaven
    A spiral stair whose top cannot be seen from Earth
    A confusingly long pathway into the sky
    And it's difficulties never seem even
