Original Trinity Hymnal, #201
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
The strife is o'er, the battle done;
The victory of life is won;
The song of triumph has begun.
The pow'rs of death have done their worst,
But Christ their legions hath dispersed:
Let shouts of holy joy outburst.
The three sad days have quickly sped;
He rises glorious from the dead:
All glory to our risen head!
He closed the yawning gates of hell;
The bars from heav'n's high portals fell:
Let hymns of praise his triumphs tell.
Lord, by the stripes which wounded thee,
From death's dread sting thy servants free,
That we may live and sing to thee,
