Music:CHRIST AROSE • Robert Lowry (1874)



Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Savior,
  Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!


Up from the grave He arose (He arose)
With a mighty triumph o'er His foes; (He arose,)
He arose a victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever with His saints to reign;
He arose! (He arose!) He arose! (He arose!)
Hallelujah! Christ arose!


Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Savior,
  Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!


Death cannot keep his prey, Jesus my Savior,
  He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!

Through [Jesus] let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge His name.
