1. It is fulfilled! Do not forget
this word, my heart, that Jesus said.
My soul, recall it was for you He died.
For you He suffered and was crucified.
Remember Him who our salvation sealed,
who cried aloud: It is fulfilled!

2. It is fulfilled! It was foretold
by faithful prophets from of old.
Find solace in the wounds of Jesus Christ
who, for the sin of man, was sacrificed.
What God Most High in ages past had willed,
our Lord has done. It is fulfilled!

3. It is fulfilled! All satisfied:
the Father lays His wrath aside.
Our peace is won and God's demands were met.
Our Saviour, Christ, has paid our ev'ry debt.
We should not fear, for his own blood was spilled
on Calvary. It is fulfilled!

4. It is fulfilled! What must I do
to add to what was done by You?
No work, no deed, for what You did for me
has earned me life with You, eternally.
My daily comfort is that I'm God's child.
I am reborn. It is fulfilled!

5. It is fulfilled! I am set free.
I praise my Lord so joyfully.
All sin and death are by Your pow'r removed
and I am by the Holy Ghost renewed.
E'en though this life should to destruction yield
yet this I know: It is fulfilled!

6. It is fulfilled! Do not forget
this word, my heart, that Jesus said
and let it serve you now and all your life.
Hold on to Christ throughout the bitter strife.
He has to you his love and grace revealed,
He who once said: It is fulfilled!

The tune for this song was written by Georg Christian Schemelli and the figured bass was by J.S. Bach. (G.C. Schemelli was born between 1676 and 1680 in Herzberg and died on 5 March 1762 in Zeitz). He was a German Cantor who composed songbooks and collaborated with Johann Sebastian Bach.) Gertim realized the alto and tenor parts.
