357. Christ 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 its prey -
Jesus my Savior!
He tore the bars away -
Jesus my Lord! [Refrain]
