Who Is Like You Jesus? – Johann Freylinghausen

Who is like you,
Jesus, beautiful Jesus?

You are the light of those who are lost.
You are the life of those who are dead.
You are freedom for those imprisoned by guilt.

You are the glory of those who hate themselves.
You are the guardian of those paralysed by fear.
You are the guide of those bewildered by falsehood.

You are the peace of those in turmoil.
You are the prince of those who yearn to be led.
You are the priest of those who seek the truth.

– A prayer of Johann Freylinghausen (1670-1739AD)

– Freylinghausen was a German Lutheran Pietist, scholar and hymnwriter.
