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 His prey, Jesus my Savior!

He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!

 

Where, O death, is your victory?

Where, O death, is your sting?

Christ is alive and death has been swallowed up in victory.

 

Darkness fell covering the earth with night;

Death and hell trying to hide His light.

But even the gave could not keep Him in.

Godís love had broken the chains of sin.

His sacrifice ransomed the souls of men.

 

Refrain:

Hallelujah!He is risen!

Hallelujah! Jesus lives!

Joy and love with reign forever!

Hallelujah! Jesus lives!

 

The Lamb was slain, shedding His precious blood;

Heavenís gain:the promised Son of God.

Angels rejoice to welcome Him home,

Singing in triumph around the throne.

All of creation let His praise be known!

 

Refrain:

 

His glories now we sing, Who died and rose on high,

Who died eternal life to bring and lives that death may die.

 

Refrain:
