“It is finished.” John 19. 30; 4. 34; 17. 4

T. Kelly              8.7.4.

1
“It is finished!” Sinners, hear it;
’Tis the dying Victor’s cry;
“It is finished!” Angels bear it,
Bear the joyful truth on high :
“It is finished!”
Tell it through the earth and sky!

2
Justice, from her awful station,
Bars the sinner’s peace no more;
Justice views with approbation
What the Saviour did and bore;
Grace and mercy
Now display their boundless store.

3
Hear the Lord himself declaring
All performed he came to do;
Sinners, in yourselves despairing,
This is joyful news to you.
Jesus speaks it,
His are faithful words and true.

4
“It is finished!” all is over;
Yes, the cup of wrath is drained;
Such the truth these words discover;
Thus the victory was obtained;
’Tis a victory
None but Jesus could have gained.

5
Crown the mighty Conqueror, crown him,
Who his people’s foes o’ercame!
In the highest heaven enthrone him!
Men and angels, sound his fame!
Great his glory!
Jesus bears a matchless name.
