Embed: And the sky grew black as the night
It is finished
And the people scattered in frightThe work had been done
Redemption had been won
The war was over without a fight
It is finishedThey searched His face for anger
For vengeance in his stare
Instead of eyes that burned with hate
A look of love was thereHe prayed for their forgiveness
And bowed His battered head
And no one knew the meaning
Of the final words He saidIt is finished
And the sky grew black as the night
It is finished
And the people scattered in frightThe work had been done
Redemption had been won
The war was over without a fight
It is finishedThe provision has been made
The foundation has been laid
He paid the ransom due
And tore the temple veil in two
And opened up the way
For me and youIt is finishedIt is finished
And the sky grew black as the night
It is finished
And the people scattered in frightThe work had been done
Redemption had been won
The war was over without a fight
It is finished

It Is Finished Lyrics

In the heat of early morning on a hill
They call The Skull
The roaring of the angry mob
Had settled to a lullAll eyes were cast upon the man
Whose hands and feet were bound
They saw Him cry in anguish
When they heard the hammer poundThey saw the bloody woven thorns with
Which His head was crowned
They watched the bloody cross of wood
Be dropped into the groundThe soldiers gambled for His clothes
They watched them win and lose
They saw the sign above His head
That said "King of the JewsIt is finished
And the sky grew black as the night
It is finished
And the people scattered in frightThe work had been done
Redemption had been won
The war was over without a fight
It is finishedThey searched His face for anger
For vengeance in his stare
Instead of eyes that burned with hate
A look of love was thereHe prayed for their forgiveness
And bowed His battered head
And no one knew the meaning
Of the final words He saidIt is finished
And the sky grew black as the night
It is finished
And the people scattered in frightThe work had been done
Redemption had been won
The war was over without a fight
It is finishedThe provision has been made
The foundation has been laid
He paid the ransom due
And tore the temple veil in two
And opened up the way
For me and youIt is finishedIt is finished
And the sky grew black as the night
It is finished
And the people scattered in frightThe work had been done
Redemption had been won
The war was over without a fight
It is finished

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Petra is a Christian Rock band formed in 1972 by Bob Hartman, Bill Glover, John DeGroff, and Greg Hough. "Petra" means "rock" in NT Greek, making the band name a triple pun. Rising from the Jesus music movement, and initially signed to [recordlabel]Myrrh Records[/recordlabel], they fought to gain acceptance and recognition in a church culture that at the time believed rock music to be off-limits. Over time they eventually won over most of their critics, thanks to a steady approach and some solid adult contemporary airplay hits like "The Coloring Song," outside of their usual rock fare. By the mid-80's, when lead singer Greg X. Volz left the band and was replaced by John Schlitt, Petra had solidified their place as the foremost Christian rock band in the industry with a string of hit albums and singles and strong touring. The release of Petra Praise: The Rock Cries Out marked a turn towards modern-sounding worship music that would soon explode into the modern worship movement.

Petra was nominated for and won numerous Grammy and Dove Awards. In 1991, after the release of their acclaimed Beyond Belief record, Petra became the first rock band ever to win for Group of the Year at the Dove Awards. They were also the first Christian rock band to be inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

For three decades Petra continued to produce albums despite changes in their line-up as well as the genre and market. On May 24th, 2005 Petra announced their retirement after 33 years of ministry. They recorded one of their final performances in Franklin, Tennessee to release it as their last album, Farewell. Their last performance finished in the early hours of January 1, 2006 in Murphy, North Carolina. Bob Hartman and John Schlitt continue to tour under the moniker II Guys From Petra.
