Who can compare to thee?
You are in me,
born of Mary, a man to be.
O Christ, in you my soul has found peace.
For whom in the skies above
can compare to thee?
Who among the heavenly beings is like you?
For a thousand years in your sight
are like a day that has gone by
or like a watch in the night.
From the rising of the sun
to the place where it sets,
who can compare to thee?
For you always remain
unseen and unknowable.
Though I perish, truth is so.
Ages pass and seasons change,
but you remain true.
Kingdoms come and kingdoms fade,
you do not change.
Who can compare to thee?
He who was and he who is holy, harmless and undefined.
He who was the bread of life was himself hungry.
For the works of your hands are just
and the skies above proclaim your greatness.
Who can compare to thee?
He who sees the unseen,
who knows the hidden secret.
For you see all that is and all that will be,
You know the present, past and the future.
Who can compare to thee?
Who moves my heart the way you do?
Who is able to do what man cannot do?
From the east to the west,
I’ve looked and haven’t found one.
Who is like you?
Who can compare to you?
For you died that we may live.
You are incomparable
in the heavens above and on the earth beneath
to all that we can see.
You cannot be compared
You’re alive
For you lived, you died,
and you were resurrected.
And over 2000 years later,
your name is still praised.
You’re true and forever
you will always be.
