Hark! the voice of love and mercy


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! 'It is finished!'
hear the dying Savior cry.

'It is finished! O what pleasure
do the wondrous words afford!
heavenly blessings without measure
flow to us from Christ the Lord:
'It is finished! 'It is finished!'
saints the dying words record.

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! 'It is finished!'
saint, from hence your comfort draw.

Saints and angels shout his praises,
his great finished work proclaim;
all on earth and all in heaven
join to bless Emmanuel's name:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Endless glory to the Lamb!
