Low in the grave He lay (Christ Arose)

Hymn – Low in the grave He lay – Lyrics

Low in the grave He lay—
Jesus my Saviour!
Waiting the coming day—
Jesus my Lord!
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!

Vainly they watch His bed—
Jesus, my Saviour!
Vainly they seal the dead—
Jesus my Lord!
Up from the grave He arose. . .

Death cannot keep his prey—
Jesus, my Saviour!
He tore the bars away—
Jesus my Lord!
Up from the grave He arose. . .
