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!

I thank the Lord for increasing the desire in me until I finally resorted to Google (I am generally a non-fan of monopolies) and FOUND the lyrics to this song! It has always been deeply entwined with my joy when I've contemplated the reality of the Resurrection. I have come to discover this reality is a daily occurrence in my own soul, if I'll allow it. THANK YOU web designers, too, for building this bridge for me and many others to find.

The reason for this song is the hope and strength of our Faith today, for if Christ had not arose from the dead, we would not have been believers today. I love this hymn, and also I celebrate the composer, may God honour him.


This song is the best.

What a man! Our Saviour Christ Jesus gave Himself over to death. He went down into Hades death's own domain. Yet death could not retain Him.

Up from the grave He arose victorious over His foe! Hallelujah!

Now His life is spreading across the earth regenerating man- bringing him up from the dead! Hallelujah!
