Hymn lyrics to It is finished, aka. Nothing either great or small, lyrics by James Proctor, music by Ira Sankey

Nothing either great or small—
Nothing, sinner, no;
Jesus did it, did it all,
Long, long ago.

“It is finished!” yes, indeed,
Finished every jot:
Sinner, this is all you need—
Tell me, is it not?

When He, from His lofty throne,
Stooped to do and die,
Everything was fully done;
Hearken to His cry:

Weary, working, burdened one,
Wherefore toil you so?
Cease your doing; all was done
Long, long ago.

Till to Jesus’ work you cling
By a simple faith,
“Doing” is a deadly thing—
“Doing” ends in death.

Cast your deadly “doing” down—
Down at Jesus’ feet;
Stand in Him, in Him alone,
Gloriously complete.
