Christ My Song - 2292
Christ has done the mighty work! - It is Finished
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
It is Finished.
2. He has sown the precious seed,
nothing left for us unsown;
ours it is to reap the fields,
make the harvest-joy our own.
3. His the pardon, ours the sin, –
great the sin, the pardon great;
his the good, and ours the ill,
his the love, and ours the hate.
4. Ours the darkness and the gloom,
his the shade-dispelling light;
ours the cloud, and his the sun,
his the day-spring, ours the night.
5. His the labour, ours the rest,
his the death, and ours the life;
ours the fruits of victory,
his the agony and strife.
Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope II, 1872, 130.
