Hymn/Song Information

FINISHED REDEMPTION




Hark! the voice of love and mercy
Sounds aloud from Calvary;
See, it rends the rocks asunder,
Shakes the earth, and veils the sky:
|:“It is finished!”:|
|:Hear the dying Saviour cry. :|


“It is finished!” O what pleasure
Do these precious words afford;
Heavenly blessings, without measure,
Flow to us from Christ the Lord:
|:“It is finished!”:|
|:Saints the dying words record.:|


Finished all the types and shadows
Of the ceremonial law;
Finished all that God had promised;
Death and hell no more shall awe:
|:“It is finished!” :|
|:Saints, from hence your comfort draw. :|


Happy souls, approach the table,
Taste the soul reviving food?
Nothing's half so sweet and pleasant
As the Saviour's flesh and blood;
|:"It is finished!":|
|:Christ has borne the heavy load.:|


Tune your harps anew, ye seraphs,
Join to sing the glorious theme;
All in earth, and all in heaven,
Join to praise Emmanuel’s Name;
|:Alleluia! Alleluia! :|
|:Glory to the bleeding Lamb! :|

Finished is our great salvation,
Jesus has fulfilled the law;
Finished all that God had promised;
Death and hell no more shall awe:

|:Saints, from hence your comfort draw. :|


Tune your harps anew, ye seraphs,
Join to sing the pleasing theme;
All in earth, and heaven uniting,
Join to praise Emmanuel's Name;
|:Alleluia! Alleluia! :|
|:Glory to the bleeding Lamb! :|


Tune your harps anew, ye seraphs,
Join to sing the pleasing theme;
All on earth, and all in heaven,
Join to praise Emmanuel's Name;
