The Strife Is O'er : -ghf133 - [Play Midi]
  1. The strife is o'er, the battle done;
    The victory of life is won;
    The song of triumph has begun,

  2. The powers of death have done their worst,
    But Christ their legions hath dispersed;
    Let shouts of holy joy outburst,

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

  4. He closed the yawning gates of hell;
    The bars from heaven's high portals fell;
    Let hymns of praise His triumphs 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.
