It is finished

This phrase—“It is finished”—keeps resurfacing for me. (I’m caught up / At the Cross) It’s a theme I can’t tire of.

Once and for all, Christ completed the work.
What peace that should give us!

There’s nothing more we can add, or should add, or are able to add to what Jesus already did. It’s done.

Accept it. Receive it. Rejoice in it!

 

It Is Finished
Matt Papa
LYRICS

Once and for all
Once and for all
You offered up Your life
For one and all
For one and all
The perfect sacrifice
Atoning blood was shed
Love conquered when You said...

CHORUS:
It is finished
It is done
To the world salvation comes
Hallelujah we're alive!
Hell was silenced when You cried:
It is finished
It is finished

Who is this King
Who is this King
So mighty and so strong
He is the one
He is the one
The earth has waited for
God's remedy for sin
With mercy for all men

CHORUS

The earth shook and trembled
The sun bowed its head
The veil of the temple was open for men
As Jesus went down in the cold of the grave
Defeated the darkness when He overcame
The keys of the Kingdom were placed into hands
Of children and priests and of fishers of men
Through all generations His voice will be heard
Creation resounds the victorious words

CHORUS

It is finished
It is done
Now completed the work of Love
Hallelujah He's alive
Join the song of the ransomed Bride
It is finished
It is finished
It is finished!

Aren’t you also glad it is finished?
