It Is Finished - Poem by Richard Merrell

God's love goes out to comfort
To save and justify
But only through blood of the Christ
On that flow I do rely.
For Yeshua is my Saviour
His blood he gave for me
This love of God is shown
Through the Rood at Calvary.
Forbid it Lord indeed that I should be
Conscious of one thing but
Your wondrous love to me.

And may I never, ever
Put a value on that blood,
For I could never really know
The price of that dear flood.

Because I do remember
And may this always be
Those words that Jesus spoke
When he cried out at Calvary.
For while hanging on that Cross
We can hear God's decree;
'My Father, Oh my Father
this completes my destiny! ' *
And those other words he cried
As his life deminished
Before they pierced his precious side
But three words, 'It is finished'
