1  The strife is o'er. the battle done;
Now is the Victor's triumph won;
O let the song of praise be sung.

2  Death's mightiest powers have done their worst,
And Jesus hath His foes dispersed;
Let shouts of praise and joy outburst.

3  On the third morn He rose again
Glorious in majesty to reign;
Oh, let us swell the joyful strain!

4  He brake the age-bound chains of hell;
The bars from heaven's high portals fell.
Let hymns of praise His triumph tell.

5  Lord, by the stripes which wounded Thee,
From death's dread sting Thy servants free,
That we may live, and sing to Thee.
