He Arose Up Yonder

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 the victor from the dark domain
Now He lives forever with His saints to reign
He arose, He arose, Hallelujah, Christ arose!

When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound and time shall be no more,
And the morning breaks, eternal bright and fair;
When the saved of earth shall gather over on the other side,
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

When the roll is called up yonder.
When the roll is called up yonder.
When the roll is called up yonder.
When the roll is called up yonder I'll be there.

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 o'er his foes
He arose the victor from the dark domain
Now He lives forever with His saints to reign
He arose, He arose, Hallelujah, Christ arose!

On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise,
And the glory of His resurrection share;
When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies,
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

When the roll is called up yonder.
When the roll is called up yonder.
When the roll is called up yonder.
When the roll is called up yonder I'll be there.

Death cannot keep her prey, Jesus my savior
He rolled the stone away, Jesus my Lord
Up from the grave He arose
With a mighty triumph o'er his foes
He arose the victor from the dark domain
Now He lives forever with His saints to reign
He arose, He arose, Hallelujah, Christ arose!

Let us labor for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,
Let us talk of all His wondrous love and care;
Then when all of life is over and our work on earth is done,
And the roll is called up yonder I'll be there.

When the roll is called up yonder.
When the roll is called up yonder.
When the roll is called up yonder.
When the roll is called up yonder I'll be there.

He arose, He arose,
So when the roll is called up yonder I'll be there!
