Refrain:
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

1 The strife is o'er, the battle done;
Now is the Victor's triumph won!
Songs of rejoicing have begun.
Alleluia! [Refrain]

2 The pow'rs of death have done their worst;
But Christ their legions has dispersed.
Let shouts of holy joy outburst.
Alleluia! [Refrain]

3 On the third day Christ rose again,
Glorious in majesty to reign.
O let us swell the joyful strain.
Alleluia! [Refrain]

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! [Refrain]

5 Lord, by the stripes which wounded you,
Free from death's sting your servants too,
That we may live and sing to you.
Alleluia! [Refrain]
