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! It is finished!” hear the dying Savior cry.
“It is finished!” O what pleasure do the charming words afford!
Heavenly blessings without measure flow to us from Christ the Lord:
“It is finished! 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! It is finished!” saint, from hence your comfort draw.
Tune your harps anew ye seraphs; join to sing the pleasing theme;
Saints on earth and all in heaven join to praise Immanuel’s name:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Glory to the bleeding Lamb!
