"The Strife is O'er, the Battle Done" is a popular Easter hymn arranged for Brass Quintet, Timpani and Organ, with an introduction, 4 verses and a postlude.  It is in the Key of D, and works with or without congregational singing.  Trumpet parts in Bb and C are included.


The strife is o’er, the battle done;
The victory of life is won;
The song of triumph has begun: Alleluia!


Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

The powers of death have done their worst;
But Christ their legions hath dispersed;
Let shouts of holy joy outburst: Alleluia!


The three sad days are quickly sped;
He rises glorious from the dead;
All glory to our risen Head! Alleluia!


He closed the yawning gates of hell;
The bars from heaven’s high portals fell;
Let hymns of praise His triumphs tell! Alleluia!


Lord, by the stripes which wounded Thee,
From death’s dread sting Thy servants free,
That we may live, and sing to Thee: Alleluia!
