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 Over 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 Saviour
Vainly They Seal The Dead Jesus My Lord

Death Cannot Keep His Prey Jesus My Saviour
He Tore The Bars Away Jesus My Lord

The Empty Cross
The Eve Of Golgotha Had Come,
And Christ Lay Shrouded In The Garden Tomb,
Among The Olives, Oh, How Dumb,
How Sad The Sun Incarnadined The Gloom!

The Hill Grew Dim The Pleading Cross
Reached Empty Arms Toward The Closing Gate.
Jerusalem, Oh, Count Thy Loss!
Oh, Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Ere It Be Too Late!

Reached Bleeding Arms But How In Vain!
The Murmurous Multitude Within The Wall
Already Had Forgot His Pain
Tomorrow Would Forget The Cross And All!

They Knew Not Rome, Before Its Sign,
Bending Her Brow Bound With The Nation’s Threne,
Would Sweep All Lands From Nile To Rhine
In Servitude Unto The Nazarene.

Nor Knew That Millions Would Forsake
Ancestral Shrines Great With The Glow Of Time,
And Lifting Up Its Token Shake
Ons With Thrill Of Love Or Battle’s Crime.

With Empty Arms Aloft It Stood:
Ah, Scribe And Pharisee, Ye Builded Well!
The Cross Emblotted With His Blood
Mounts, Highest Hope Of Men, Against Earth’s Hell!
