How I love the voice of Jesus – It was finished

HOW I LOVE THE VOICE OF JESUS
on the cross of Calvary;
he declares his work is finished,
he has spoken this hope to me.
Though the sun had ceased its shining,
though the war appeared as lost,
Christ had triumphed over evil—
it was finished upon that cross.

2 Now, the curse, it has been broken:
Jesus paid the price for me;
full, the pardon he has offered,
great the welcome that I receive.
Boldly I approach my Father,
clothed in Jesus’ righteousness;
there is no more guilt to carry—
it was finished upon that cross.

3 Death was once my great opponent,
fear once had a hold on me,
but the Son who died to save us
rose that we would be free indeed!

Death was once my great opponent,
fear once had a hold on me,
but the Son who died to save us
rose that we would be free indeed!
Yes, he rose that we would be free indeed!

Free from every plan of darkness,
free to live and free to love;
death is dead and Christ is risen—
it was finished upon that cross.

Onward to eternal glory,
to my Saviour and my God;
I rejoice in Jesus’ victory—
it was finished upon that cross,
it was finished upon that cross,
it was finished upon that cross.
