SUFFERINGS AND DEATH
"'Tis finished!" so the Saviour cried,
And meekly bowed His head, and died;
'Tis finished! yes, the race is run,
The battle fought, the victory won.
'Tis finished! that which heaven foretold
By prophets in the days of old;
And truths are opened to our view
That kings and prophets never knew.
'Tis 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.
'Tis 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!

And truths are opened to our view
That kings and prophets never knew.

'Tis finished! Son of God, Thy power

And yet our eyes with sorrow see
That life to us was death to Thee.

'Tis 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!
