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

Verse 2
The powers of death have done their worst,
But Christ their legions hath despersed;
Let shouts of holy joy outburst, Alleluia!

Verse 3
The three sad days have quickly sped;
He rises glorious from the dead;
All glory to our risen Head! Alleluia!

Verse 4
He breaks the age-bound chains of hell;
The bars from heaven's high portals fell;
Let hymns of praise His triumph tell: Alleluia!

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!
