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

2. The pow'rs of death have done their worst,
But Christ their legions has dispersed;
Let shout of holy joy outburst:

3. The three sad days have quickly sped,
He rises glorious from the dead;
All glory to our risen Head:

4. Lord, by the stripes which wounded Thee,
From death's dread sting Thy servants free,
That we may live and sing to Thee:
