Original text and translations

English.png English text

1. ’Tis finished! ’Tis done!
The spirit is fled,
The prisoner is gone,
The Christian is dead!
The Christian is living
In Jesus’s love,
And gladly receiving
A kingdom above.

 

2. All honor and praise
Are Jesus’s due;
Supported by grace,
He fought his way through;
Triumphantly glorious
Through Jesus’s zeal,
And more than victorious
O’er sin, death, and hell.

 

3. Then let us record
The conquering name,
Our captain and Lord
With shoutings proclaim:
Who trust in his passion
And follow our head,
To certain salvation
We all shall be led.

 

4. O Jesus, lead on
Thy militant care,
And give us the crown
Of righteousness there;
Where dazzled with glory
The seraphim gaze,
Or prostrate adore thee
In silence of praise.

 

5. Come, Lord, and display
Thy sign in the sky,
And bear us away
To mansions on high;
The kingdom be given,
The purchase divine,
And crown us in heaven
Eternally thine.
