Today... 'The Finisher Of Faith'

Poem By Roy Allen

Ascending into heaven to triumphant applause
the battle was over and the victory was Yours.
Death had now been vanquished and the grave was opened wide
'It is Finished' was the great shout of triumph You cried.

The work is behind You the price for sin had been paid
the sepulchre was empty where Your body once laid.
You had endured the cross and despised its dreadful shame.
The heavens rejoice and Your great victory proclaim.

And there seated at the right hand of God I can see
my Lord Jesus Christ Who has finished the faith for me.
For my great Author and the Finisher of the faith
won the victory over Satan and now I'm safe.

Despising the shame and enduring Calvary's cross
You came to seek and to save this poor sheep that was lost.
'It is finished, ' I hear that great victorious cry
Resounding throughout heaven as the years pass on by

The temple shook and it was filled with smoke
and all went silent as the Lord God spoke.

I had seen the Lord, The Almighty One.
