283. 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 watched His bed, Jesus, my Savior!
Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus, my Lord! [Refrain]

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