1 Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my Saviour,
waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!
Up from the grave he arose;
as the victor over all his foes;
he arose in triumph from the dark domain,
and he lives forever, with his saints to reign.
He arose! He arose! Alleluia! Christ arose!

2 Vainly they guard his bed, Jesus my Saviour,
vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord! [Refrain]

3 Death cannot keep his prey, Jesus my Saviour;
he tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord! [Refrain]
