269. Christ Arose!

1 Low in the grave he lay—-
Jesus my Saviour!
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 for ever with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!

2 Vainly they watch his bed—-
Jesus my Saviour!
Vainly they seal the dead—-
Jesus my Lord. (Refrain)

3 Death cannot keep his prey—-
Jesus my Saviour!
He tore the bars away—-
Jesus my Lord! (Refrain)
