It is finished. John xix. 30. P. M.
1 Hark! the voice of love and mercy
Sounds aloud from Calvary;
" It is finish'd ;”
2 O what joy to helpless sinners
These triumphant words afford! Heavenly blessings without measure Flow to us through Christ the Lord.
“ It is finish'd;" Saints His dying words record.
3 Praise the Lord, ye Saints, adore Him,
Loudly sing Emmanuel's name:
“It is finish'd ;"
The blood of Christ cleanseth from all sin. C. m.
I FROM Calvary's cross, a fountain flows
Of water and of blood,
Or famed Siloam's flood.
2 The dying thief rejoic'd to see
That fountain in his day ;
Wash all their guilt away. 3 Ne'er shall that fountain's sacred stream
Lose its all-cleansing power,
Be sav'd, to sin no more.
To all our souls apply ; Grant that to Thee we henceforth live,
Grant that to sin we die ;5 Till, spotless placed at thy right hand,
Safe in the realms above,
And sing thy boundless love.
BEHOLD the Lamb of God,
Who takes our sins away;
And praise Him day by day.
Be every mountain low,
Shall His salvation know.
The heathen realms abroad
The glory of the Lord.
The Life, the Truth, the Way!
On Thee our hopes we stay.
54. The Crucifixion. Matt. xxvii.
1 Behold the Saviour of mankind
Nail'd to the fatal tree!
To bleed and die for me! .
2 Hark! how He groans ! all nature shakes,
Night shrouds the firmament;
The solid rocks are rent. 3 'Tis done! the precious ransom's paid;
“Receive my soul,” He cries : See, where He bows His sacred head!
He bows His head and dies.
4 But soon He'll break death's envious chain,
And in full glory shine;
Was ever love like thine ?
55. Encouragement from the triumphs of Christ.
(4. 6 & 2. 8.)
And feel His quickening power,
His goodness to adore :
Your great Redeemer's glorious name. 2 He left His throne above,
His glory laid aside,
And wept, and bled, and died :
To save our souls from death and hell ? 3 He burst the Grave; He rose
Victorious from the dead;
In glorious triumph led :
Triumphant to the throne of God.
He soon again will come,
To realms of endless day :
56. Captivity led captive. (4. 6. & 2. 8.) 1 The happy morn is come!
Triumphant o'er the grave,
Omnipotent to save.
For Jesus liveth that was dead. 2 Who now accuses them,
For whom their Surety died ?
Whom God hath justified ?
For Jesus liveth that was dead. 3 Christ hath the ransom paid;
The glorious work is done ;
By Him our victory won;
For Jesus liveth that was dead. 57. Christ conquering death, and him that hath the
power of death. (4.7.)
Bruis'd to-day the Serpent's head ;
Swift from heaven like lightning fell. 2 Love's redeeming work is done;
Fought the fight, the battle won;
