Text Information


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,"
" 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)
