"Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Savior,
Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!
Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!
Death cannot keep it's prey, Jesus my Savior;
He tore the bars away, 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!
I remember singing this Easter hymn every year since I was a little girl. These precious words, written by Robert Lowry in 1874
still thrill my soul today.
