The strife is over the battle done

1.THE strife is o'er, the battle done;
Now  is the Victor's  triumph won;
Now be the song of praise begun:
                                 Alleluia!

2.The  powers  of death  have done their worst,
But Christ their legions hath dis¬persed;
Let shouts of holy Joy outburst:
Alleluia!

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

4.Lord, by the stripes which wounded Thee,
From death's dread sting Thy ser¬vants free,
That we may live and sing to Thee :
Alleluia
