I was looking for Easter hymn “Low in the Grave” or “Up from the Grave He Arose” and found this adorable clip on YouTube. It appears to be a recording of two brothers presenting a music special at a small church.
They really sing their hearts out and get most of the words correct. This may be my new favorite version of that classic Easter hymn. I’m pasting the lyrics below so you can follow along.
Up from the Grave He Arose Lyrics
Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my Savior,
waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!
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!
Vainly they watch his bed, Jesus my Savior,
vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!
Death cannot keep its prey, Jesus my Savior;
he tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!
Here’s another version of this classic Easter song from YouTube video. “Low in the grave he lay” – it’s basically required for every English speaking church on Easter morning! It’s the heart of the Christian message & hope celebrated every Spring.
