Representative Text

1 Lowly entombed He lay,
My blessed Saviour;
Waiting the promised day,
My precious Lord.

Up from the tomb He arose!
And in triumph vanquished all His foes,
He arose a victor o’er the realms of night,
And He reigns forever with His saints in light;
He arose, He arose,
Victor over all His foes.

2 Vainly they watch Him now,
My blessed Saviour;
Surely He’ll keep His vow,
My precious Lord. [Refrain]

3 Bursting the seal, He rose,
My blessed Saviour;
Scatt’ring His armed foes,
My precious Lord. [Refrain]
