1. Low in the grave He lay- Je-sus my Sa - vior! Wait- ing the com-ing day2. Vain - ly they watch His bed— Je-sus my Sa - vior! Vain - ly they seal the dead3. Death can- not keep His prey, Je-sus my Sa - vior

He tore the bars a-way

Al - le - lu - ia Al - le - lu - ia,

is the an-them joy - ful Mother,

Ev - er dear to choirs on high; All thy chil - dren sing with thee;

In the house of God a -bi - ding, Thus they sing e ter - nal - ly.
But by Ba - by - lon's sad wa-ters Mourn-ing ex iles now are

we.

3 Alleluia cannot always

Be our song while here below; Alleluia, our transgressions

Make us for awhile forego; For the solemn time is coming

When our tears for sin must flow.

4 Therefore in our hymns we pray Thee

Grant us, blessed Trinity,
At the last to keep Thine Easter

In our home beyond the sky;
There to Thee forever singing

Alleluia joyfully.

85 CHRIST THE LORD, IS RISEN TO-DAY, HALLELUJAHI

1. 'Tis Eas-ter time, glad Eas-ter time, Let all the joy-bells ring, 2. Let chil-dren sing with happy hearts, For Je-sus loves their song, 3. The sto - ry old is ev - er new, We tell it o'er and o’er,

[merged small][ocr errors]

Come, tell a - gain the sto ry old, Of Christ, the ris - en King.
They too may praise the ris en Lord With all the joy - ful throng.
And each re- turn - ing Eas - ter day, We love it more and more.

REFRAIN.

All hail glad day, all hail glad day, For Je - sus lives! He lives! As

on

that first bright Eas - ter morn, His joy and peace He gives.
