It is Finished

Recently, I came across this line in a commentary: ‘the cross of Christ is the decisive and uniquely sufficient means to rescue sinners from death’ (Moo, BECNT: Galatians, pg. 71).

As I considered these words, the below song and video came to mind.  Listen and celebrate.

There’s no deed that can redeem us
There’s no rite, no magic word
Only by the work of Jesus
Can salvation be secured

It is finished! He has done it!
Let your weary heart rejoice
Our redemption is accomplished
Raise a shout with ragged voice

And go bravely into battle
Knowing he has won the war
It is finished, lift your head
And weep no more

There’s no sacrifice to offer
There’s no penance to complete
Freely drink of living water
Without money come and feast

Let every sinner rejoice
Hear the dying victor’s cry
Raise up your voice
Sing it out through earth and sky
