224. 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, (he arose)
with a mighty triumph o'er his foes; (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) 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]
