The Strife Is O’er, the Battle Done

Chorus:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

I.
The strife is o’er, the battle done;
The victory of life is won;
The song of triumph has begun:
Alleluia!

II.
The pow’rs of death have done their worst;
But Christ their legions has dispersed;
Let shouts of holy joy outburst:
Alleluia!

III.
The three sad days are quickly sped;
He rises glorious from the dead;
All glory to our risen Head:
Alleluia!

IV.
He closed the yawning gates of hell;
The bars from heav’n’s high portals fell;
Let hymns of praise His triumphs tell:
Alleluia!

V.
Lord, by the stripes which wounded You,
In us You’ve won the vict’ry too,
That we may live, and sing to You:
Alleluia!
