175. Low in the Grave He Lay

6.5.6.4.
1
Low in the grave He lay—
 
Jesus, my Saviour!
 
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 Saviour!
 
Vainly they seal the dead—
 
Jesus, my Lord!
3
Death cannot keep his prey—
 
Jesus, my Saviour!
 
He tore the bars away—
 
Jesus, my Lord!
