1 The sacrifice is now completed,
The debt of love is paid;
Naught else, to save us now is needed,
Death’s hand at last is stayed.
What glorious thought, what wondrous light,
Upon mankind bursts forth so bright?
‘Tis His appearing from the grave,
As forth He came, all men to save.
Then come to Christ and be forgiven,
O come to Him for grace;
Too long, O sinner, have you striven,
Come to a resting place.
2 Angelic host swell out your singing,
For all mankind must hear,
That Christ to all salvation’s bringing,
To ev’ry heart most dear.
Let all who weary of life’s pain,
With hearts bowed down by guilt and sin,
Cast off their guilt and sin and shame,
And let the precious Saviour in. [Refrain]
