GOOD Friday

It is finished! 
John 19:30

Hark! the voice of love and mercy
   Sounds aloud from Calvary;
See! It rends the rocks asunder,
   Shakes the earth, and veils the sky:
      'It is finished!'
Hear the dying Savior cry.
'It is finished!' What assurance
   Do the wondrous words afford!
Heavenly blessings without measure
   Flow to us from Christ the Lord:
      'It is finished!'
Saints the dying words record!

Finished all the types and shadows
   Of the ceremonial law,
Finished all that God had promised;
   Death and hell no more shall awe:
       'It is finished!'
Saints, from hence your comfort draw.

Saints and angels shout His praises,
   His great finished work proclaim;
All on earth and all in heaven
   Join to bless Immanuel's name:
Endless glory to the Lamb!
                         Jonathan Evans   1748-1809

If we be dead with Christ, we believe that we 
shall also live with Him. Romans 6:8
