NONE IS LIKE JESHURUN'S GOD

1.NONE Is like Jeshurun's God,
So great, so strong, so high;
Lo! He spreads His wings abroad,
He rides upon the sky :
Israel is His first-born son;
God, the almighty God, is thine;
See Him to thy help come down,
The excellence divine.

2.Thee the great Jehovah deigns
To succour and defend;
Thee the eternal God sustains,
Thy Maker and thy Friend :
Israel, what hast thou to dread?
Safe from all impending harms,
Round thee and beneath are spread
The everlasting arms.

3.God is thine; disdain to feat
The enemy within :
God shall in thy flesh appear,
And make an end of sin;
God the man of sin shall slay,
Fill thee with triumphant joy;
God shall thrust him out, and say :
Destroy them all, destroy!

4.All the struggle then is o'er,
And wars and fightings cease;
Israel then shall sin no more,
But dwell in perfect peace :
All his enemies are gone;
Sin shall have in him no part;
Israel now shall dwell alone,
With Jesus In his heart.

5.Blest, O Israel, art thou!
What people is like thee?
Saved from sin by Jesus, now
Thou art and still shalt be;
Jesus is thy sevenfold shield,
Jesus is thy flaming sword;
Earth, and hell, and sin shall yield
To God's almighty Word.
