“It is Finished” songs for Good Friday

Jésus Sera En Agonie Jusqu’a La Fin Du Monde, Georges Rouault (1922)

Last night I traveled from Raleigh over to Greensboro to participate in Hope Chapel‘s Maundy Thursday service.  They were recreating the New York Hymns album “Songs for Lent” that walks through the Stations of the Cross via texts from the Sacred Harp hymnal. It was a gorgeous evening of music and meditation on the life and death of Jesus.  One song struck me in particular.  Michael Van Patter‘s reworking of Samuel Stennet’s hymn “It is Finished,” the Redeemer said.”  This phrase is at the heart of why we can celebrate Good Friday.  And as I meditated on the phrase I remembered that I have heard quite a few good songs focused on that phrase.  Here they are for you:
