The victory of life is won;
The song of triumph has begun: Alleluia!
But Christ their legions hath dispersed;
Let shouts of holy joy outburst: Alleluia!
He rises glorious from the dead;
All glory to our risen Head! Alleluia!
The bars from heaven’s high portals fell;
Let hymns of praise His triumphs tell! Alleluia!
From death’s dread sting Thy servants free,
That we may live, and sing to Thee: Alleluia!
