The Strife is O'er, the Battle Done
Hymn lyrics and .mp3 Download
Antiphon: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
1. The strife is o'er, the battle done; the victory of life is won; the song of triumph has begun: Alleluia!
2. The powers of death have done their worst, but Christ their legions hath dispersed; let shouts of holy joy outburst: Alleluia!
3. The three sad days are 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 servants free, that we may live, and sing to thee: Alleluia! (Antiphon)
