419. Hark! The voice of love and mercy

Author: Jonathan Evans 1748-1809

Hark! the voice of love and mercy
sounds aloud from Calvary;
see, it tears the temple curtain,
shakes the earth and veils the sky:
‘It is finished. It is finished!’
hear the dying Saviour cry.

2. Finished, all the types and shadows
of the ceremonial law!
God fulfils what he has promised;
death and hell shall reign no more:
‘It is finished. It is finished!’
Christ has opened heaven’s door.

3. Saints and angels shout his praises,
his great finished work proclaim;
all on earth and all in heaven
join to bless Immanuel’s name:
‘Hallelujah, hallelujah,
endless glory to the Lamb!’
