The Joy of the Resurrection - 4

Finished the strife of battle now,
gloriously crowned the victor's brow:
sing with gladness, hence with sadness:
Alleluia, alleluia!

After the death that him befell,
Jesus Christ has harrowed hell:
songs of praising we are raising:
Alleluia, alleluia!

On the third morning he arose,
shining with victory o'er his foes;
earth is singing, heaven is ringing:
Alleluia, alleluia!

Lord, by your wounds on you we call:
now that from death you've freed us all:
may our living be thanksgiving:
Alleluia, alleluia!
