When in the grave the Savior lay,
Death triumphed for an hour,
But soon the Lord of life arose,
And passed beyond its power.
Yes, he broke death’s mighty sway,
Passed to realms of endless day,
Hallelujah to the Savior,
For He lives, He lives to reign for aye.
So shall the dead in Christ arise,
According to His Word,
Pass far beyond earth’s night, to be
Forever with the Lord.
Beyond the darkness of the tomb,
Beyond all pain and sin,
There safe in peace to rest at home,
Heav’n’s gates to pass within.
