Nothing Can Compare

By Rick Founds and Elton Smith

CCLI Number: 3900350

Anyone who experiences an encounter with the Living God, will find themselves asking the question that the Prophet Isaiah asked long ago; "... To whom, then, will you compare God?..." "...this Sovereign LORD who comes with power... who rules and rewards", and yet "tends his flock like a shepherd and gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart...." who "...measured the waters of the earth in the hollow of His hand, and knows exactly how much the mountains weigh?" who indeed can compare to Him! The answer is the same today as it was then: "NOTHING CAN COMPARE!" (Isaiah 40:10-18) - Rick, October 21, 2002

Another song with Rick! I wrote the music, and came up with the "nothing can compare" theme and a few of the lyrics. Rick added lots more lyrics and made some suggestions on the music. After some tweaking and polishing we were both very happy with the results. There is beauty and wonder in contemplating the greatness of God. We pray that our song brings you to worship the Lord. Many thanks to Steve Israel for the recording available below. - Elton

(Introduction)

(Verse 1)
Precious Lord, Savior Dear,
Nothing can compare,
Nothing can compare.
Bringing hope, calming fear,
Nothing can compare,
Nothing can compare...

(Chorus)
With the wonders of the love
You have shown to the world,
And the grace that freely flows from Heaven's throne.
You are the Light of the world, I pray to You.
Nothing compares with the miracles You do.
Nothing in Heaven and nothing on Earth
Compares with Your greatness, O Lord.

(Verse 2)
Shining forth glory bright,
Nothing can compare,
Nothing can compare.
Lamb of God, guiding Light,
Nothing can compare,
Nothing can compare...

(Repeat Chorus)
With the wonders of the love
You have shown to the world,
And the grace that freely flows from Heaven's throne.
You are the Light of the world, I pray to You.
Nothing compares with the miracles You do.
Nothing in Heaven and nothing on Earth
Compares with Your greatness, O Lord.

(Ending)
You are the Light of the world.
Nothing compares with You, Lord.
You are the Light of the world.
Nothing compares with You, Lord.
