Written by Jessy Dixon, and originally recorded by Danibelle Hall (Live in Sweden), we have had fun with "He's The Best Thing" for several years. On one occasion, the sisters sang this song at a High School talent show with the solo sung by Karen's daughter, Karly. We called ourselves "Karly and the Aunts", and we actually won one of the ribbons!

We were concerned about recording this song because the harmony can be difficult. So, on Saturday night in the studio, after finishing another song, we sat around the piano with Glen (the producer) and worked out the kinks in the harmony. It was after 2:00AM. Once we were comfortable with the song, which we were planning to do the next morning, Glen suddenly started playing some tunes on the piano and told us to "Name That Tune." His first choice was "The Brady Bunch" (was he telling us something?). We played for another half-hour. When we climbed into bed, that morning (at about 3:30AM) we were able to rest our minds since we had been given a chance to hear something besides our own music! This time Krystal is the soloist and she does it in her own jazzy style.

He's The Best Thing Song Clip

(Chorus)
He's a light, light to my pathway, He's a lamp unto my feet
When I was sinking, sinking in sin and sorrow
He came along and rescued me
He's the joy, joy of salvation, He's all the world to me, to me
He saved me, and He raised me, all my sins He forgave me
He's the best thing, best thing to happen to me

I have a friend, above all others, He's everything to me
His love is deeper, deeper than any ocean
His love is wider than the sea
How can I tell just how much I love him
He's all the world to me
He saved me, and He raised me, all my sins He forgave me,
He's the best thing, best thing to happen to me

(Chorus)

He's the best thing that ever happened to me
Best thing to happen to me
He saved me and He raised me, all my sins He forgave me
He's the best thing, best thing to happen to me

I tried the rest, I had to come on back to the best thing
Best thing to happen to me
