Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! 
Verse 1
The strife is o'er, the battle done; 
the victory of life is won; 
the song of triumph has begun. 
Verse 2
The powers of death have done their worst, 
but Christ their legions has dispersed. 
Let shouts of holy joy outburst. 
verse 3
The three sad days are quickly sped; 
he rises glorious from the dead. 
All glory to our risen Head. 
Verse 4
He closed the yawning gates of hell; 
the bars from heaven's high portals fell. 
Let hymns of praise his triumph tell. 
Verse 5
Lord, by the stripes which wounded thee, 
from death's dread sting thy servants free, 
that we may live and sing to thee. 
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
