’Tis finished! so the Savior cried,
And meekly bowed His head and died;
’Tis finished—yes, the race is run,
The battle fought, the victory won.

’Tis finished—all that Heaven decreed,
And all the ancient prophets said,
Is now fulfilled, as was designed,
In Me the Savior of mankind.

’Tis finished—Heaven is reconciled,
And all the powers of darkness spoiled.
Peace, love, and happiness again
Return and dwell with sinful men.

’Tis finished—let all the joyful sound
Be heard through all the nations round:
’Tis finished—let the echo fly
Thro’ Heav’n and hell, thro’ earth and sky.
