1. ‘Tis finished, so the Savior cried,
And meekly bowed his head and died,
'Tis finished – yes, the race is run,
The battle fought, the victory won.

2. 'Tis finished – all that heaven decreed,
And all the ancient prophets said
Is now fulfilled, as was designed,
In me the Savior of mankind.


3. 'Tis finished – Aaron now no more
Must stain his robes with purple gore:
The sacred veil is rent in twain,
And Jewish rites no more remain,

4. 'Tis finished – this my dying groan
Shall sins of every kind atone:
Millions shall be redeemed from death,
By this my last expiring breath.


5. 'Tis finished – heaven is reconciled,
And all the powers of darkness spoiled:
Peace, love, and happiness again
Return and dwell with sinful men.

6. 'Tis finished – let the joyful sound
Be heard through all the nations round:
'Tis finished – let the echo fly
Through heaven and hell, through earth and sky.
