Great Songs of the Church-Low in the Grave He lay (He Arose!)

One of the best loved hymns for Resurrection Day, it was written by Robert Lowry in 1874.

1 Low in the grave He 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!

3 Death cannot keep his prey—
  Jesus, my Savior!
He tore the bars away—
  Jesus my Lord!     
lyrics from hymnal.net

He is risen indeed! Hallelujah!!
