233. L. M. Stennett. Christ Suffering on the Cross.
1 |'T is finished!| -- so the Saviour cried,
And meekly bowed his head and died:
|'T is finished!| -- yes, the race is run,
The battle fought, the victory won.
2 |'T is finished!| -- all that heaven foretold
By prophets in the days of old;
And truths are opened to our view,
That kings and prophets never knew.
3 |'T is finished!| -- Son of God, thy power
Hath triumphed in this awful hour;
And yet our eyes with sorrow see
That life to us was death to thee.
4 |'T is finished!| -- let the joyful sound
Be heard through all the nations round;
|'Tis finished!| -- let the triumph rise,
And swell the chorus of the skies.
