The Idahoan presents a song titled "King of Jeshurun" based on Deuteronomy Chapter 33.

Lyrics:

The Lord to Sinai did descend,
The earth did shake, the rocks did rend,
His light broke forth from Mount Paran,
Like the coming of the dawn,
To the myriad saints of Israel,
Upon whom His love and mercy fell,
To whom He gave His holy law,
In blazing fire, in fear and awe,
And in the hollow of His hand,
He bore them to the Promised Land.

'Twas Moses did the Lord appoint,
His ordinances to implement,
A king was he in Jeshurun,
The realm of all God's holy ones,
And Moses blessed all Israel's tribes,
Who should in God's favor abide:

Let Reuben live and not be few,
Hear Judah's prayer; his hands with strength endue,
Levi at Massah God did prove,
Who forsook his kin for God above.
Thy holy one shall Levi be,
Thy light in sacred gems to see.

Benjamin in favor abides,
Upon God's shoulder he shall ride.
Joseph shall in all be blessed,
With harvest bounty, peace, and rest,
With flocks and herds in stall and fold,
And treasures hid 'neath mountains old,
And in strength thou shalt expand,
The boundaries of all thy land.

Rejoice, oh Issachar, at home,
And Zebulun where e'er thou roam,
Reap thou the bounty of the sea,
For righteous shall thine offering be.

Blessed be the warriors of Gad,
Who new lands by conquest add,
With strength of lions to the realm,
Who smite the shield and crush the helm;
Enforce the justice of the Lord,
By strength of arms and force of word.

God shall the tribe of Naphtali,
With abundant blessing satisfy.
Crouched like a lion in Bashan,
From thence shall leap the tribe of Dan.
Asher the Lord shall multiply,
And bathe in oil that runs not dry,
Shod with brass and iron he,
His strength shall e'er sufficient be.

In all the world there is no one,
Like the God of Jeshurun:
Who upon the heaven rides,
Thine help to be whate'er betide;
The excellency of his love,
Is writ upon the sky above,
And beneath: His everlasting arms,
Shall be thy refuge from all harm.

There all the tribes of Israel,
In untold harmony shall dwell.
Milk and honey, corn and wine,
And dew of heaven shall be thine,
Blessed are thou, oh Israel!
Thy seed of God's deliverance tell:
For God almighty is Thy shield,
And His eternal arm shall wield,
Thy sword upon the battlefield,
That all thy foes should in disgrace,
Be trampled down before thy face.

The Lord to Sinai did descend,
The earth did shake, the rocks did rend,
His light broke forth from Mount Paran,
Like the coming of the dawn.
A King was He in Jeshurun,
The realm of all God's holy ones.
