Though In The Grave The Savior Lay

Tho’ in the grave the Savior lay,
And o’er Him death did reign;
He burst the mighty gates of death,
The Savior ‘rose again.

He ‘rose again,
He ‘rose again,
Triumphant o’er the pow’r of death,
The Savior ‘rose again.

Within the dark and silent tomb
Not long did He remain;
The grave could not His glory hide,
The Savior ‘rose again. [Refrain]

And o’er our ransomed souls shall death
Expend His pow’r in vain!
In Christ we have eternal life,
Because He ‘rose again. [Refrain]
