1. Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Savior, Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!
Refrain: Up from the grave He arose, With a mighty triumph o’er His foes, He arose a Victor from the dark domain, And He lives forever, with His saints to reign. He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose!
2. Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Savior; Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!
3. Death cannot keep its Prey, Jesus my Savior; He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!
