  Hymn of the Week

“The Strife Is O’er”
The strife is o’er, the battle done;
the victory of life is won;
the song of triumph has begun:
Alleluia!
The powers of death have done their worst,
but Christ their legions hath dispersed;
let shouts of holy joy outburst:
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! (UMH, no. 306)

—Anon. Latin, translated by Francis Pott
