207. Up From the Grave 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 its prey,
Jesus, my Savior!
He tore the bars away,
Jesus, my Lord! [Refrain]
