Alleluia! Sing to Jesus - 2



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:
Alleluia!

Death's mightiest powers have done their worst,
And Jesus hath his foes dispersed;
Let shouts of praise and joy outburst:
Alleluia!

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

He brake the age-bound chains of hell:
The bars from heaven's high portals fell;
Let hymns of praise his triumph tell:
Alleluia!

Lord, by the stripes which wounded thee
From death's dread sting thy servants free,
That they may live, and sing to thee:
Alleluia!
