The Strife Is O’er, The Battle Done Lyrics

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

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 has dispersed.
Let shouts of holy joy outburst.

3 The three sad days are 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 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.

Final Ending:
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

The Strife Is O’er, The Battle Done Hymn Story

“The strife is o’er, the battle done” is a Christian hymn that was composed by Francis Pott. It was first published in 1861.

Albert Bailey writes, “The words present the theological statement that the Crucifixion was a contest between Christ and the devil’s legions, in which Christ won. This is proved by the fact that Christ did not stay dead” (The Gospel in Hymns, 278)
