William B. Bradbury


Nothing ei­ther great or small,
Remains for me to do;
Jesus died and paid it all—
Yes, all the debt I owe.


Jesus paid it all,
All the debt I owe;
Jesus died, and paid it all—
Yes, all the debt I owe.

When He from His lof­ty throne
Stooped down to do and die,
Everything was ful­ly done;
Yes, Fin­ished! was His cry.


Weary, work­ing, plod­ding one!
O, where­fore toil you so?
Cease your do­ing: All was done
Yes, ag­es long ago.


Till to Je­sus’ work you cling,
Alone by sim­ple faith,
Doing is a dead­ly thing,
All do­ing ends in death.


Cast your dead­ly do­ing down,
Down, all at Je­sus’ feet;
Stand in Him, in Him alone,
All glo­ri­ous and comp­lete.
