Are you looking for a hymn to sing with your family this Easter?

“Christ Arose” is a wonderful hymn to consider. The words found in the three verses of this hymn are a great reminder of the glorious truth that Christ rose again.


Christ Arose


Up from the grave He arose
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes.
He arose a victor from the dark domain
And He lives forever with His saints to reign!
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!

Verse 1

Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Saviour
Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord.

Verse 2

Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Saviour
Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord.

Verse 3

Death cannot keep his prey, Jesus my Saviour
He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord.
