    The victory of life is won;
    The song of triumph has begun, Alleluia!

    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!
