The three most profound words

In the scheme of eternity;

Flowing from the lips of Jesus

As He hung on that tree.

“It is finished!” He proclaimed

As He sealed the destiny,

Of those who would receive Him

And where eternal life they’d see.

“It is finished!”

Are poignant words indeed,

Where the wrath of God no longer remains

For those whom Jesus did intercede.

“It is finished!”

Where satan can no longer steal,

The soul of those who made an exchange

And their salvation has been sealed.

“It is finished!”

The curse of sin no longer remains;

Through a sacrifice so powerful

And restorative in many ways.

“It is finished!”

Where the debt was paid in full;

Wiping it completely and forever

And where our sins shall be as wool.

You crucified our pride

So we’re dependant upon You;

Knowing that salvation is solely in Your hands

And where our vision is renewed.

All our anxieties and strivings

We should lay at the cross,

Knowing they’re in the safety of Your hands

With a love and peace embossed.

“Father forgive them

For they do not know what they do”

Those precious sacred words

Came from Your heart that’s pure and true.

As You hung for our sake

And gave Your final breath;

You were resurrected after three days

Since in You was found no death.

Your Ascension is living proof

That eternal life awaits,

For the repentant and the humble hearts

Who long to see Your face.
