It is finished. John xix. 30.
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 !
“ It is finish'd,"
3 Praise the Lord, ye Saints, adore Him,
Loudly sing Emmanuel's name:
“It is finish'd ;"
52. The blood of Christ cleanseth from all sin.
1 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 sin we die ;5 Till, spotless placed at thy right hand,
Safe in the realms above,
And sing thy boundless love.
Christ the Lamb of God.
1 BEHOLD the Lamb of God,
Who takes our sins away;
And praise Him day by day.
every valley high, Be every mountain low, The proud must stoop, the humble soul
Shall His salvation know.
3 The heathen realms abroad
Shall join in sweet accord:
The glory of the Lord.
The Life, the Truth, the Way!
On Thee our hopes we stay.

Nail'd to the fatal tree !
To blced and die for me !
2 Hark! how He groans ! all nature shakes,
Night shrouds the firmament; The temple's veil asunder breaks,
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,
And wept, and bled, and died :
To save our souls from death and hell ? 3 He burst the Grave; He rose
Victorious froin the dead;
In glorious triumph led :
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

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;
