"FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD
THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,
THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM
SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE."
John 3:16

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection,
and the life: he that believeth in me,
though he were dead, yet shall he live:
And whosoever liveth and believeth in me
shall never die, Believest thou this?


John 11:25, 26 KJV
This was spoken to Martha concerning
the death of her brother, Lazarus.

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
The emblem of suff'ring and shame;
And I love that old cross
where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.

Chorus
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down.
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction for me;
For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above,
to bear it to dark Calvary.

Chorus
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down.
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see; For 'twas on that old cross
Jesus suffered and died, To pardon and sanctify me.

Chorus
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down.
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true,
Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then He'll call me some day to my home
far away, Where His glory forever I'll share.

Chorus
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down.
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

"And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted:
Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified:
He is risen; He is not here: behold the place
where they laid him.
Mark 16:6 (KJV)

LOW IN THE GRAVE HE LAY

CHRIST AROSE


Words: Robert Lowry, 1874; first appeared in
Brightest and Best (New York: Biglow & Main, 1875).

Listen to the music.

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 Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead, 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!

Death cannot keep its Prey, Jesus my Savior;
He tore the bars away, 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!
