It Is Finished

Words by the Rev. James Proctor Music by Ira D. Sankey

"Nothing, either great or small—
Nothing, sinner, no.”

The Scotch people are especially fond of this hymn. The author prefaced it with these lines: ”Since I first discovered Jesus to be the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth, I have more than once met with a poor sinner seeking peace at the foot of Sinai instead of Calvary, and I have heard him again and again in bitter disappointment and fear groaning out, 'What must I do?' I have said to him, 'Do, do? What can you do? What do you need to do?"'
