[Refrain:] Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

1 The strife is o’er, the battle done;
now is the victor's triumph won;
now be the song of praise begun: Alleluia! (Refrain)

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

3 The three sad days are quickly sped,
he rises glorious from the dead;
all glory to our risen Head! Alleluia! (Refrain)

4 He broke the agebound chains of hell;
the bars from heaven's high portals fell;
let hymns of praise his triumph tell: Alleluia! (Refrain)

5 Lord, by the strips which wounded thee,
from death’s dread sting thy servants free,
that we may live and sing to thee: Alleluia! (Refrain)
