94. Low in the Grave He Lay (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 over death's 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]
