335. 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 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]
