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

2 The powers of death have done their worst,
but Christ their legions has dispersed:
let shouts of holy joy outburst.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

3 The three sad days are quickly sped,
Christ rises glorious from the dead:
all glory to our risen Head!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

4 He closed the yawning gates of hell,
the bars from heav'n’s high portals fell;
let hymns of praise his triumph tell.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

5 Lord, by your wounds on Calvary
from death’s dread sting your servants free,
that we may live eternally.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
