Low in the grave He lay

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!
Vainly they watch His bed—
  Jesus, my Savior!
Vainly they seal the dead—
  Jesus my Lord!
Death cannot keep his prey—
  Jesus, my Savior!
He tore the bars away—
  Jesus my Lord!

We are singing this is in New Zealand a week late. Nevertheless, it is never too late.. Despite the lockdown there can be a remnant living in resurrection on the earth today, in fact, our present situation only encourages this resurrection life - therefore , "Vainly they watched his bed... Vainly they seal the dead".

May this truly be our experience today dear Lord. Hallelujah for His death and resurrection!

Christ has conquered the grave and death for us. He died and rose to prove himself worthy. Hallelujah, he is risen.

I woke up Easter Morning remembering this song that I sang in church growing up. I always have loved this song! He arose and I am so thankful! Jesus died for me but the grave could not hold him! He arose!
