1 "It is finished"--all the pain,
All the sorrow, all the strain;
Death has freed the Lord of life
From the burden of His strife.

2 "It is finished"--all the days,
Led thro' many weary ways;
Now at last His eyelids close
On the hatred of His foes.

3 "It is finished"--all the love,
Deep as His that dwells above;
Saving others, all He gave,
But Himself He would not save.

4 "It is finished"--Hark! the cry,
Uttered in love's agony,-
Is the seal, below, above,
Of the victory of love.
