Low in the Grave He Lay

Low in the grave He lay,
   G       C
Jesus my saviour;
F           C
Waiting the coming day,
  G   D7 G
Jesus my Lord!


Up from the grave He arose
              F                C
With a mighty triumph over His foes.
   G7                      C
He arose a victor from the dark domain
       F                      G7
And He lives forever with His saints to reign,
    C         F	         C      G7     C
He arose, He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose!

Vainly they watch His bed,
Jesus my saviour;
Vainly they seal the dead,
Jesus my Lord!

Death cannot keep His prey,
Jesus my saviour;
He tore the bars away,
Jesus my Lord!
