Christ Arose!
Words and Music by Robert Lowry

Mark 16:6
"And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted:  Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth,
which was crucified:  he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him."

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

            Chorus
            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 for ever with His saints to reign.
            He arose! (He arose!), He arose! (He arose!)
            Hallelujah!  Christ arose!

          Vainly they watch His bed - Jesus my Savior!
          Vainly they seal the dead - Jesus my Lord!

            Chorus
            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 for ever with His saints to reign.
            He arose! (He arose!), He arose! (He arose!)
            Hallelujah!  Christ arose!

          Death cannot keep his prey - Jesus my Savior!
          He tore the bars away - Jesus my Lord!

            Chorus
            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 for ever with His saints to reign.
            He arose! (He arose!), He arose! (He arose!)
            Hallelujah!  Christ arose!
