Give praise to God on high,
With angels round the throne: Give praise to God with joy,
Glory to God alone. 'Tis meet his saints their songs should raise And give the Saviour endless praise.
Luke. ii. 13, 14.
Hark! the herald angels sing, Hallelujah,
Joyful all ye nations rise; Hallelujah,
Veild in flesh the Godhead see, Hallelujah
Mild he lays his glory by, Hall.
Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace, Hall.
It is finished-all is over
Yes, the cup of wrath is drained;
'Tis a victory
That which Prophets long predicted,
That which Jewish sacrifice
It is finished :
Thus redemption was completed,
Sin atoned, the curse removed, Satan, death and hell defeated, As the resurrection proved;
All was finished : Here our hoje still rests unmoved. Crown the mighty Conqueror, crown him,
Who his people's foes o'ercame;
Spread his glory,
CCXCVII. “ He said, it is finished."-John xix. 30. Hark! the voice of love and mercy,
Sounds aloud from Calvary;
It is finished,
All performed He came to do;
This is joyful news to you.
Jesus speaks it!
Justice from her awful station,
Bars the sinners peace no more ! See she views with approbation, What the Saviour did and bore;
Grace and mercy
It is finished, sinners hear it,
'Tis the dying Victor's cry;
It is finished,
Tune your harps anew, ye seraphs,
Join to sing the pleasing theme;
CCXCVII. “We did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and
afflicted.”—Isaiah liii. 4, 5.
STRICKEN, smitten, and afflicted,
See Him dying on the tree !
Yes, my soul, 'tis he, 'tis he!
Mark the sacrifice appointed;
See who bears the awful load, "Tis the WORD—the Lord's anointed,
Son of man and son of God.
Here we have a firm foundation;
Here's the refuge of the lost :
His the name of which we boast.
Lamb of God for sinners wounded,
Sacrifice to cancel guilt,
Who on Thee their hopes have built.
