333. Low in the Grave He Lay

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

Refrain:
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!
Alleluia! 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]
