172 ~ The Strife Is O'er



1

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
The strife is o'er, the battle done;
Now is the victor's triumph won!
Now be the song of praise begun.
Alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!


2

The pow'rs of death have done their worst,
But Christ their legions has dispersed.
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 You,
From death's sting free Your servants too,
That we may live and sing to You.
Alleluia!
