233. He Rose

1 They crucified my Saviour
and nailed him to the tree,
they crucified my Saviour,
and nailed him to the tree,
they crucified my Saviour,
and nailed him to the tree
and the Lord will bear my spirit home.

Refrain:
He rose, (he rose) he rose, (he rose)
he rose from the dead!
He rose, (he rose) he rose, (he rose)
he rose from the dead!
He rose, (he rose) he rose, (he rose)
he rose from the dead,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home.

2 Then Joseph begged his body
and laid it in a tomb,
then Joseph begged his body
and laid it in a tomb,
then Joseph begged his body,
and laid it in a tomb,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home. [Refrain]

3 Sister Mary she came running,
a-looking for my Lord,
Sister Mary she came running,
a-looking for my Lord,
Sister Mary she came running,
a-looking for my Lord,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home. [Refrain]

4 An angel came from heaven
and rolled the stone away,
an angel came from heaven
and rolled the stone away,
an angel came from heaven
and rolled the stone away,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home. [Refrain]
