He Arose

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!

Robert Lowry, 1874

“Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.   He is not here, for he has risen, as he said” (Matthew 28:5-6).
