Tune: [It is finished, finished now]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 It is finish'd, finish'd now;
Take away the crown of thorn;
Useless now your laugh of scorn,
Cease the mocking word and bow.

2 It is finish'd, taunt no more;
Take away the scarlet dress,
(Emblem of your wickedness,)
For the hunted life is o'er.

3 It is finished; lo! the earth
Hides in night for very shame,
And, in throes of grief and shame,
Gives its dead a second birth.

4 It is finished; blessed Lord,
Rise into thy glory now!
Take thy crown and sceptre, thou
By all earth and heaven adored!
