Lyrics

Lowly entombed He lay,
My blessèd Savior;
Waiting the promised day,
My precious Lord.

Refrain

Up from the tomb He arose!
And in triumph, vanquished all His foes;
He arose a victor o’er the realms of night;
And He reigns forever with His saints in light,
He arose (He arose),
He arose (He arose),
Victor over all His foes.

Vainly they watch Him now,
My blessèd Savior;
Surely He’ll keep His vow,
My precious Lord.

Refrain

Bursting the seal, He rose,
My blessèd Savior;
Scatt’ring His armèd foes,
My precious Lord.
