The strife is o’er, the battle won (Victory)

Victory. G.P.da Palestrina (1591)

Alleluia Alleluia Alleluia
The strife is o’er, the battle done;
now is the Victor’s triumph won;
O let the song of praise be sung:

Death’s mightiest powers have done their worst,
and Jesus hath his foes dispersed;
let shouts of praise and joy outburst:

On the third morn he rose again
glorious in majesty to reign;
O let us swell the joyful strain:

Lord, by the stripes which wounded thee
from death’s dread sting thy servants free,
that we may live, and sing to thee

Latin, 7th cent. Tr. F. Pott 1861
