“Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified…is risen.” – Mark 16:6

Christ Arose

Verse 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!

Verse 2:
Vainly they watch His bed- Jesus, my Savior!
Vainly they seal the dead- Jesus, my Lord!

Verse 3:
Death cannot keep his prey- Jesus, my Savior!
He tore the bars away- Jesus, my Lord!
