Text: Anonymous Latin; trans. by Francis Pott, 1832-1909
Music: Giovanni P. da Palestrina; arr. by W.H. Monk
Tune: VICTORY, Meter: 888 with Alleluias

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!
