1 Low in the grave He sleeps,
Cold in the tomb,
Now o’er my Savior sweeps
Death’s sable gloom.
Hark! I hear an angel voice:
“He is not here, He’s risen.”

Glory! glory! shout the joyful strain!
Christ is risen, evermore to reign!
Hallelujah! shout with every breath!
Christ has triumphed over death.

2 Closed are His pilgrim toils,
Suffering one,
Death now around Him coils
God’s only Son.
Hark! I hear an angel voice:
“He is not here, He’s risen.” [Refrain]

3 Just as the dawn is seen,
With anxious feet
Comes Mary Magdalene
With spices sweet.
Hark! I hear an angel voice:
“He is not here, He’s risen.” [Refrain]

4 Jesus has conquered death,
Shout the glad strain!
Burst He its mighty bars,
Risen to reign.
Hark! I hear an angel voice:
“He is not here, He’s risen.” [Refrain]
