1 Low in the grave Christ 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
