Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

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

2.  The powers of death have done their worst,
    But Christ their legions hath dispersed:
    Let shouts of holy joy outburst.

3.  The three sad days are quickly sped,
    Christ rises glorious from the dead:
    All glory to our risen Head!

4.  Lord, by Your wounds on Calvary
    From death's dread sting Your servants free,
    That we may live eternally.
    Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
