Singing the Refrain

If you listen carefully to the refrain you will hear echo tones for (He arose!)
after the first two lines and after the "He arose!" phrases in the fifth line.
This can be left unsung or if you want to have some extra fun with this song, you can
assign a person to sing the echo (He arose!) at the locations noted in the lyrics.


(Verse 1)

Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Savior,
Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!

(Refrain)

Up from the grave He arose, (He arose!)
With a mighty triumph o'er His foes, (He arose!)
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! (He arose!) 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!

(Refrain)

Up from the grave He arose, (He arose!)
With a mighty triumph o'er His foes, (He arose!)
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! (He arose!) He arose! (He arose!)
Hallelujah! Christ arose!

(Verse 3)

Death cannot keep its prey, Jesus my Savior;
He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!

(Refrain)

Up from the grave He arose, (He arose!)
With a mighty triumph o'er His foes, (He arose!)
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! (He arose!) He arose! (He arose!)
Hallelujah! Christ arose!
