Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
1 The strife is o'er, the battle done!
The victory of life is won;
The song of triumph has begun.
2 The powers of Death have done their worst,
But Christ their legions hath dispersed;
Let shouts of holy joy outburst.
3 The three sad days are quickly sped;
He rises glorious from the dead;
All glory to our risen Head!
4 He closed the yawning gates of hell,
The bars of heaven's high portals fell;
Let hymns of praise His triumphs tell!
5 Lord! by the stripes which wounded Thee,
From Death's dread sting Thy servants free,
That we may live, and sing to Thee,
