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!’
    Hear the dying Saviour cry.
2  ‘It is finished!’ O what pleasure
    Do the wondrous words afford!
Heavenly blessings without measure
    Flow to us through Christ the Lord:
        ‘It is finished!’
    Saints, the dying words record!
3  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!’
    Saints, from this your comfort draw.
4  Saints and angels sing His praises!
    His atoning work proclaim;
All on earth and all in Heaven
    Join to praise Emmanuel’s name!
    Endless glory to the Lamb!
Jonathan Evans, 1748-1809
