Hymn #257: The strife is o'er, the battle done

Change to large font

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah!

1. The strife is o'er, the battle done;
the victory of life is won;
the song of triumph has begun.

2. Death's mightiest powers have done their worst,
but Christ their legions has dispersed:
let shouts of praise and joy outburst:

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

4. Lord, from your wounds God's blessings spring:
free us, we pray, from death's dread sting
that we may live, and ever sing:

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah!
