Hymn for July

Well it is the beginning of a new month and that means it is time for a new hymn to memorize in our family devotions. Last month we encouraged you to memorize with us. Here is the original post.... http://sing-to-jesus.blogspot.com/2008/06/behold-lamb.html

Both boys were able to easily memorize the hymn and love to sing. As promised to Caleb, this month we are going to do "Low in the grave He lay." This one is probably familiar to most of you but here is the tune if you need it.... http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/l/i/lintgrav.htm

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 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!


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