4082. Let Us Rejoice, the Fight Is Won

1. Let us rejoice, the fight is won,
Darkness is conquered, death undone,
Life triumphant! Alleluia!
So age to age each nation grows
More like the heart of Him who rose.

Alleluia, alleluia,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2. Joy comes again! all shall be well,
Friends severed now in Heav’n shall dwell
Reunited! Alleluia!
The end of all our ways is love,
Then rise with Him to things above. [Refrain]

3. Thou boundless power, Thou God on high,
How could Thy children fear to die?
Joy immortal! Alleluia!
Thy right rewards, Thy love forgives;
We know that our Redeemer lives. [Refrain]
