Tune: CHRIST AROSE, Meter: 65.64 with Refrain
1. Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my Savior, Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!
Refrain: 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)
Christ, the Lord, is risen today, Alleluia!
All creation joins to say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, O heavens, and earth, reply, Alleluia!
Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now your sting? Alleluia!
Dying once, He all doth save, Alleluia!
Where your victory, O grave? Alleluia!
Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids Him rise, Alleluia!
Christ hath opened paradise, Alleluia!
Soar we now where Christ hath led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!
