When the King awakened in His lowly grave,
He arose, He arose;
He arose a victor, He arose to save;
He arose, He arose.

Refrain

He arose from the grave;
From its power He will save
He will save His people from the last of foes,
He arose, He arose.

There were angels watching by His humble bed,
He arose, He arose;
When He laid aside the vestments of the dead;
He arose, He arose.

Refrain

Jesus took away from death its awful sting;
He arose, He arose,
In the dark, dark valley now His child can sing;
He arose, He arose.

Refrain

He arose, and now He reigns, a king on high,
He arose, He arose;
He arose a victor, so by grace, shall I;
He arose, He arose.
