The United Methodist Hymnal


Up from the Grave He Arose

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!

2	Vainly they watch his bed, Jesus my Savior; 
	vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord! [Refrain]

3	Death cannot keep its prey, Jesus my Savior; 
	he tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord! [Refrain]
