What God doesn't know

Tim Keller, preaching on Exodus 14 at the 2011 Gospel Coalition Conference, quotes a hymn I've never heard:

Well may the accuser roar
Of sins that I have done
I know them all - 
And thousands more -
Jehovah knoweth NONE!

He also points out that 'Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord' is, in Hebrew, basically 'Stand still and see the Yeshua (Jesus) of the Lord.'

Worth meditating on.

The hymn is an old one titled: His Be the Victor's Name. Words by Samuel Gandy. There are several varients on the internet. Search for the title or search on "What tho' the'accuser roar
Of ills that I have done;
I know them well, and thousands more;
Jehovah findeth none." Not all versions have this stanza.

Another variant of the key stanza is:
Well may the Accuser roar
of sins that I have done.
I know them well,
and thousands more,
Johovah knoweth none.
