8.8.6.8.8.6.


1
"TIS finished!" our blest Saviour said,
And meekly bowed His blessèd head,
Poured out His soul, and died.
The veil by God was rent in twain,
And He who died now lives again:
Sound the glad message wide!
2
"Tis finished!" Love unfathomed flows
In that blest word. No angel knows
Such solace for the soul.
Love far beyond all angel ken,
The work of Christ in love for men,
Which makes the sin-sick whole.
3
"Tis finished!" Joyous let us sing;
No other hand need aught to bring,
'Tis finished every whit.
God's righteousness is now revealed;
Believers, by the Spirit sealed,
Are thus for Him made fit.
