Low in the Grave He Lay

This is another one of my favorite hymns.  I love how it perfectly captures the feelings evoked by the sacrifice of Jesus.  Robert Lowry really knew what he was doing when he wrote this song!

Appropriately, the verse starts out slowly, like a somber dirge, reflecting the solemn, tragic nature of Christ's death...  But then the tempo increases as the lyrics go on describe His resurrection which kindles a feeling of triumphant hope!
