Author: Charles Wesley

Charles Wesley, M.A. was the great hymn-writer of the Wesley family, perhaps, taking quantity and quality into consideration, the great hymn-writer of all ages. Charles Wesley was the youngest son and 18th child of Samuel and Susanna Wesley, and was born at Epworth Rectory, Dec. 18, 1707.

Notes

None is like Jeshurun's God. C. Wesley. [Safety in God.] Appeared in Hymns and Sacred Poems, 1742, p. 248, in 9 stanzas of 8 lines, and based on Deut. xxxiii. 26, &c. (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. ii. p. 205.) It was included in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1780, No. 395, with the omission of stanza vii.-ix., and the alteration in stanza ii. of:—
“God hath underneath thee spread His everlasting arms,"
to:—
" Round thee and beneath are spread The everlasting arms."
The alteration in the same stanza of "Sinner! what hast thou to dread?" to "Israel, what hast thou," &c, has been traced to a copy of the Wesleyan Hymn Book of 1797. The hymn, usually with these changes, is in common use in Great Britain and America. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
