Robert Lowry, 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 its Prey, Jesus my Savior;
He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!
