Download Mp3: Tetelestai
I started writing this song about 7 months ago. It took several directions before I pulled it into this arrangement. It is so fitting that I finished recording it on Passover weekend and came across this video animation at the same time, so I borrowed the title from the original video, Tetelestai (Greek - It is finished).
These were the last words of Jesus Christ on the cross:
28Jesus knew that his mission was now finished, and to fulfill Scripture he said, “I am thirsty.” 29A jar of sour wine was sitting there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put it on a hyssop branch, and held it up to his lips. 30When Jesus had tasted it, he said, “It is finished!” Then he bowed his head and released his spirit.

I've added a few edits in the video so that it flows with the music but the original can be viewed at Full of Eyes. Chris Powers does incredible artwork and animations, please check them out.
