Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

'Tis finished, the Redeemer said

'Tis finished, the Redeemer said

Published in 11 hymnals

Representative Text

1 "'Tis finish'd," the Redeemer said,
And meekly bow'd his dying Head,
Whilst we this Sentence scan,
Come, Sinners, and observe the Word.
Behold the conquests of the Lord,
Compleat for helpless Man.

2 Finish'd the Righteousness of Grace,
Finish'd for Sinners pard'ning Peace;
Their mighty Debt is paid:
Accusing Law cancell'd by Blood,
And Wrath of an offended God
In sweet Oblivion laid.

3 Who now shall urge a second Claim?
The Law no longer can condemn,
Faith a Release can shew;
Justice itself a Friend appears,
The Prison House a whisper hears,
"Loose him, and let him go."

4 O Unbelief, injurious Bar!
Source of tormenting, fruitless Fear,
Why dost thou yet reply?
Where'er thy loud Objections fall,
"'Tis finish'd" still may answer all,
And silence ev'ry Cry.

5 His Toil divinely finish'd stands,
But ah! the Praise his Work demands,
Careful may we attend!
Conclusion to our Souls be this,
Because Salvation finish'd is,
Our Thanks shall never End.
