Three Words

It is finished;
the work is accomplished!

When Jesus Christ died on the cross at Calvary, the greatest work that ever took place on this earth was accomplished. This work was so infinite, and above all so very hard, that it weighed heavily upon our Lord, even beforehand. When He still had the whole path of suffering before Him.


It is finished;
the task is completed!

With the death of Jesus on the cross at Calvary, the greatest task that was ever given to a person was completed. Our Lord died as the Son of God on the cross, but He suffered the torture of His task as man. For hour after hour He was tormented by terrible pain, in order to complete the greatest task that was ever given to a man on this earth.


It is finished;
the battle is over!

The work is accomplished, the task is completed, and the battle of the Lamb of God is over, once and for all! What must that have meant to our Lord, when He was able to say the victorious words, “It is finished!”? What must it have meant to Him when His long and painful path of suffering came to an end and the battle was over? We can never fathom this with our finite understanding, but the triumph in heaven was doubtless immeasurable when the Lamb of God conquered death at Calvary. Jesus Christ Himself declared that there would be rejoicing “…in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth” (Luke 15:10). How much greater must the rejoicing have been in heaven, when the slain Lamb of God returned as the victorious hero of Calvary!

At Calvary

Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified,
Knowing not it was for me He died on Calvary.

Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty at Calvary.

By God's Word at last my sin I learned;
Then I trembled at the law I'd spurned,
Till my guilty soul imploring turned to Calvary.

Now I've given to Jesus everything,
Now I gladly own Him as my King,
Now my raptured soul can only sing of Calvary!

Oh, the love that drew salvation's plan!
Oh, the grace that brought it down to man!
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span at Calvary!

My soul found liberty at Calvary!
