168. Low in the Grave He Lay (He Arose)

1 Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Savior!
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!

2 Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Savior!
Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord! [Refrain]

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