Nobody Else

Who else is as wonderful as Jesus?
Nobody else, nobody else.
No one is as wonderful as Jesus.
He's the only Son of God.

Who but Christ would die to pay for our sins?
Nobody else, nobody else.
Only Christ would die to pay for our sins.
He's the only Son of God.

Who but Christ could rise from death in victory?
Nobody else, nobody else.
Only Christ could rise from death in victory.
He's the only Son of God.

Who but Christ will come back to take us home?
Nobody else, nobody else.
Only Christ will come back to take us home.
He's the only Son of God.

About this Song:
Roger-2021
You may listen to a recording of this song here and a PDF of the free lead sheet is available here.

Unlike the Bible, which never changes despite the wide variety of translations available these days, my song lyrics aren’t set in stone. Occasionally I realize there’s a better way to say something or–in this case–something I should emphasize differently.

“Nobody Else” used to have three additional stanzas after “Who else is as wonderful…?” and no matter how appropriate “loving,” “merciful,” and “selfless” were in describing Jesus, I had done what authors are supposed to refrain from doing: I was telling, not showing.

Although I quickly grew tired of that song as written in 2010, it took six years for me to feel led and to find a way to improve it.

In 2016 I deleted those three stanzas and let the remaining ones show how wonderful Jesus was by pointing out that He died for our sins, rose from death in victory, and will come back again at the end of the age to take us home to Heaven.

“Nobody Else” is a pleasure to sing now. It helps me celebrate in a very personal way just how wonderful Jesus was…and still is.

If you’d like to say something about this song, I’d love for you to leave a comment.

I’ll be back again next Wednesday.

Best regards,
Roger
