Hark! the Voice of Love and Mercy
Words: Attributed variously to Jonathan Evans and Benjamin Francis
Music: It Is Finished
1. 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! It is finished!
It is finished! Hear the dying Savior cry;
Hear the dying Savior cry.

2. It is finished! O what pleasure
Do these precious words afford;
Heav’nly blessings, without measure,
Flow to us from Christ the Lord:
It is finished! It is finished!
It is finished! Saints the dying words record;
Saints the dying words record.

3. 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! It is finished!
It is finished! Saints, from hence your comfort draw;
Saints, from hence your comfort draw.

4. Tune your harps anew, ye seraphs,
Join to sing the glorious theme;
All in earth, and all in Heaven,
Join to praise Emmanuel’s name;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Glory to the bleeding Lamb!
Glory to the bleeding Lamb!
