I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth.@Romans 1:16

It is finished; what a Gospel!
Nothing has been left to do,
But to take with grateful gladness
What the Savior did for you.

Refrain

It is finished, hallelujah!
It is finished, hallelujah!
Christ the work has fully done,
Hallelujah!
All who will may have their pardon
Through the blood of God’s own Son.

It is finished; what a Gospel!
Bringing news of victory won,
Telling us of peace and pardon
Thro’ the blood of God’s dear Son.

Refrain

It is finished; what a Gospel!
Here each weary laden breast
That accepts God’s gracious offer,
Enters into perfect rest.

Refrain

It is finished; what a Gospel!
Jesus died to save your soul;
Have you taken His salvation?
Have you let Him make you whole?

Refrain
