Representative Text

1 When the King awakened in His lowly grave,
He arose, He arose;
He arose a Victor, He arose to save;
He arose, He arose.

He arose from the grave;
From its pow’r, He will save;
He will save His people from the last of foes,
He arose, He arose.

2 There were angels watching by His humble bed,
He arose, He arose;
When He laid aside the vestments of the dead;
He arose, He arose. [Refrain]

3 Jesus took away from death its awful sting;
He arose, He arose;
In the dark, dark valley now His child can sing;
He arose, He arose. [Refrain]

4 He arose and now He reigns, a King on high,
He arose, He arose;
He arose a Victor, so by grace, shall I;
He arose, He arose. [Refrain]
