Low In The Grave He Lay

by Robert Lowry (1826-1899)

Tune: Christ Arose P.M.

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 for ever 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!
