1 The strife is past, the battle done;
now is the victor's triumph won
O let the song of praise be sung,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

2 Death's mightiest powers have done their worst;
and Jesus has his foes dispersed
let shouts of praise and joy outburst,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

3 The three sad days have quickly sped,
he rises glorious from the dead,
all glory to our risen head
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

4 Lord over death, our wounded king,
save us from Satan's deadly sting
that we may live for you and sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
