Title: Tis finished the Messiah dies

Date: 30/07/2009 (Other)

Speaker: Congregation

Bible Reference: Summer Conference Hymn


?TIS finished! the Messiah dies,
Cut off for sins, but not His own;
Accomplished is the sacrifce ,
The great redeeming work is done.
?Tis finished! all the debt is paid;
Justice divine is satisfied;
The grand and full atonement made;
God for a guilty world hath died.

The veil is rent in Christ alone;
The living way to heaven is seen;
The middle wall is broken down,
And all mankind may enter in.
The types and figures are fulfilled;
Exacted is the legal pain;
The precious promises are sealed;
The spotless Lamb of God is slain.

The reign of sin and death is o?er,
And all may live from sin set free;
Satan hath lost his mortal power;
?Tis swallowed up in victory.
Saved from the legal curse I am,
My Saviour hangs on yonder tree:
See there the meek, expiring Lamb!
?Tis finished! He expires for me.

Accepted in the Well-beloved,
And clothed in righteousness divine,
I see the bar to heaven removed,
And all Thy mertis , Lord, are mine.
Death, hell, and sin are now subdued;
All grace is now to sinners given;
And lo, I plead the atoning blood,
And in Thy right I claim Thy heaven.

Charles Wesley, 1707-88
