Low in the Grave He Lay
1
Low in the grave he lay,
Jesus my Savior,
waiting the coming day,
Jesus my Lord!
0
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!
3
Death cannot keep its prey,
Jesus my Savior;
He tore the bars away,
Jesus my Lord!
