THE STRIFE IS O'ER


1 Allelúia, Allelúia, Allelúia!
The strife is o'er, the battle done;
Now is the Victor's triumph won;
O let the song of praise be sung:
Allelúia!
2 Allelúia, Allelúia, Allelúia!
Death thought His pow'r fore'er brought down,
Yet Jesus doth all hell confound;
Let voice of laud and joy resound:
Allelúia!
3 Allelúia, Allelúia, Allelúia!
On the third morn He rose again,
Glorious in majesty to reign;
O let us swell the joyful strain:
Allelúia!
4 Allelúia, Allelúia, Allelúia!
Lord, by the stripes which wounded Thee,
From death's dread sting Thy servant's free,
That we may live, and sing to Thee:
Allelúia!

Allelúia, Allelúia, Allelúia!

1 Allelúia! Allelúia! Allelúia!
O sons and daughters, let us sing!
The King of heav'n, the glorious King,
O'er death today rose triumphing.
Allelúia!
2 Allelúia! Allelúia! Allelúia!
That Easter morn, at break of day,
The faithful women went their way
To seek the tomb where Jesus lay.
Allelúia!
3 Allelúia! Allelúia! Allelúia!
An angel clad in white they see,
Who sat, and spoke unto the three,
"Your Lord doth go to Galilee."
Allelúia!
4 Allelúia! Allelúia! Allelúia!
On this most holy day of days,
To God your hearts and voices raise,
In laud and jubilee and praise.
Allelúia!
5 Allelúia! Allelúia! Allelúia!
And we with Holy Church unite,
As evermore is just and right,
In glory to the King of light.
Allelúia!
