This is a ninth century text that uses four names of God in each verse, in the same order they first appear in the Bible. The song has five verses. I feel these as five different emotional movements. The journey moves from a statement of belief, through questioning, thanks, and blessing. The fifth verse is a personal declaration of loyalty, touching the highest note of the piece on the word malkeinu, meaning king, or ruler.

1. There is none like our God; there is none like our Lord; there is none like our King; there is none like our Saviour.
2. Who is like … etc.
3. Let us thank … etc.
4. Blessed be … etc.
5. You are … etc.”
