Notated Music 'Tis finished, or, Sing hallelujah: song and chorus words and music by Henry C. Work.
'Tis Finished! or Sing Hallelujah.
'Tis finished! 'tis ended! The dread an awful task is done;
Tho' wounded and bleeding, 'tis ours to sing the vict'ry won,
Our nation is ransom'd—our enemies are overthrown
And now, NOW commences, the brightest era ever known.
Then sing hallelujah! sing hallelujah! Glory be to God on high!
For the old flag with the white flag is hanging in the azure sky.
Ye joybells! ye peacebells! Oh never, never music rang,
So sweetly, so grandly, since angels in the advent sang,
Your message is gladness to myriads of waiting souls,
As onward and worldward the happy, happy echo rolls.
Come patriots! come freemen! Come join your every heart and voice;
We've wept with the weeping—now let us with the blest rejoice,
With armies of victors who round about the white throne stand
With Lincoln, the Martyr and Liberator of his land.
