It Is Finished

The first time I heard this song, I wept like a baby. (You can watch the music video here – just know that it has pretty graphic scenes pulled from The Passion of the Christ movie.) It is such a beautiful telling of what Jesus has done for us. I have heard the gospel my whole life, but I’m constantly amazed at how Christ’s love and sacrifice never cease to move me. I am so incredibly thankful for such a Savior. Praying you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!

It Is Finished – by Matt Papa

Once and for all, once and for all
You offered up your life
For one and all, for one and all
The perfect sacrifice
Atoning blood was shed
Love conquered when you said

It is finished
It is done
To the world salvation comes
Hallelujah, we’re alive!
Hell was silenced when you cried
It is finished, it is finished

Who is this King? Who is this King?
So mighty and so strong
He is the One, He is the One
The earth has waited for
God’s remedy for sin
With mercy for all men

It is finished
It is done
To the world salvation comes
Hallelujah, we’re alive!
Hell was silenced when you cried
It is finished, it is finished

The earth shook and trembled
The sun bowed its head
The veil of the temple was opened for man
As Jesus went down in the cold of the grave
Defeated the darkness when He overcame
The keys of the Kingdom were placed into hands
Of children and priests and of fishers of men
Through all generations His voice will be heard
Creation resounds the victorious word

It is finished
It is done
To the world salvation comes
Hallelujah, we’re alive!
Hell was silenced when you cried

It is finished
It is done
Now completed the work of love
Hallelujah, He’s alive!
Join the song of the ransomed bride
It is finished, it is finished
It is finished, it is finished
