IT IS FINISHED




“‘Tis finished!” so the Saviour cried,
And meekly bowed His head and died;
“‘Tis finished!”—yes, the race is run,
The battle fought, the victory won.


“’Tis finished—all that Heaven decreed,
And all the ancient prophets said,
Is now fulfilled, as was designed,
In Me the Saviour of mankind.”


"'Tis finished" — Son of God, thy power
Hath triumphed in this awful hour;
And yet, our eyes with sorrow see
That life to us was death to thee.


"'Tis finished" — Aaron now no more
Must stain his robes with purple gore;
The sacred veil is rent in twain.
And Jewish rites no more remain.


"'Tis finished" — this, my dying groan,
Shall sins of every kind atone:
Millions shall be redeemed from death,
By this, my last expiring breath.


“‘Tis finished!” Heaven is reconciled,
And all the powers of darkness spoiled;
Peace, love, and happiness again
Return, and dwell with sinful men.


“‘Tis finished!” let the joyful sound
Be heard through all the nations round;
“‘Tis finished!”—let the echo fly
Through heaven and hell, through earth and sky.

“‘Tis finished!” so the Saviour cried,
And meekly bowed His head and died;
“‘Tis finished!”—yes, the work is done,
The battle fought, the victory won.


“’Tis finished—all that Heaven decreed,
And all the ancient prophets said,
Is now fulfilled, as long designed,
In Me the Saviour of mankind.”


“’Tis finished—all that Heaven foretold,
By prophets in the days of old,
And truths are opened to our view,
The kings and prophets never knew.”


"'Tis finished!" This his dying groan,
Shall sins of deepest hue atone:
Millions shall be redeemed from death,
By Jesus' last expiring breath.


"'Tis finished!" let the thrilling sound
Be heard through all the nations round;
"'Tis finished!" Let the triumph rise,
And swell the chorus of the skies.
