I HOPE THIS IS THE SONG

LORD YOU'RE THE BEST THING,THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME

             ( 1st Verse )
YOU BEEN MY FRIEND,FOR SO LONG
YOU WHERE RIGHT,AND I WAS WRONG
I CAN'T REPAY,YOU ALL THE LOVE,YOU GIVEN ME
YOU WHERE MY FRIEND,WHEN NO ONE CARED
I WAS ALONE,BUT YOU WHERE THERE
LORD YOU'RE THE BEST THING,THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME

                ( Chorus )
I OWE IT ALL TO YOU LORD,ALL I HAVE IS YOU LORD
SO TAKE MY LIFE,MAKE IT WHAT,YOU HAVE IT BE
FOR I'M YOUR CHILD,AND YOUR MY FATHER
I'M THE CLAY,AND YOUR THE POTTER
LORD YOU'RE THE BEST THING,THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME

             ( 2nd Verse )
BORROWED TREASURES,BORROWED DREAMS,
ALL LIFE'S JOY,YOU GIVEN ME
WHEN TROUBLE COMES,YOUR ALWAYS THERE,TO MAKE ME SMILE
SO COME WHAT MAY,THY WILL BE DONE
I LOVE YOU JESUS,GOD'S ONLY SON
LORD YOU'RE THE BEST THING,THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME

I think this is all the correct words,if not I'm sorry.

GOD BLESS           



     Your the Best Thing That ever Happened To Me

You've been my life for so long, you were right when I  was wrong. I can't explain all the love you've given me, you've been my friend when no one cared, I was alone, but you were there, Lord your the best thing that ever happened to me.



I owe it all to you Lord, All I have is yours Lord, take my life and make me what you'd have me be, for I'm your child and your my father, I'm the clay and your the potter, Lord your the best thing that ever happened to me

Borrowed treasures, borrowed dreams, all lifes joy's you've given me, when troble comes, your always there to make me smile, let come what may, thy will be done, I love you Jesus, Gods precious son, Lord your the best thing that ever happened to me.

I don't know if anyone has heard of them or not but there used to be a group out of Hanging Rock, Ohio that sang this song. They even recorded it on a couple of their albums. They were known as The Jenkins Family. Hope this info helps. God Bless!

Lord Your The Best Thing

 
v.1-
You've been in my life for so long,
You are right when I've been wrong,
I can't repay all the love you've given me,
You were my friend when no one cared,
I was alone but you've been there,
Lord you're the best thing thats ever happened to me.

                (*Chorus*)
I owe it all to you Lord all I have is you Lord,
Lord take my life and make it what You have it be,
for I'm your child and your my father I'm the clay,
and your the potter, Lord you're the best tihng
thats ever happened to me.


-v.2-
Borrowed treasures  borrowed dreams, all lifes joys
you've given me, when trouble comes You're always
there to make me smile, Let come what may thy will
be done I love You Jesus God's precious Son,
Lord You're the best thing thats ever happened to me.

Micah Henson was a a tremendous song writer, but he did not write this song.  This song was written long before Micah was born.

This is a beautiful song, and the way I have heard it sung before was so full of passion. Sorry I don't know the cords myself, but I can hear it playing in my mind right now.

The Clark Family sings a great version of "You're the best thing that's ever happend to me" .

Maybe if you contact them you can get more information or possibly where they got their sheet music.

Found on their CD "Lord you've been so good"

the chorus makes more sense to me if you sing it:
And I owe it all to You, Lord
All I have is Yours, Lord.
Take my life and make me what You'd have me be.
I'm the clay and You're the Potter,
I'm Your child, You're my Father.
Lord, You're the best thing that's ever happened to me.

It just seems that after you say the line, "Take my life and MAKE me what You'd have me be" should be followed by the line , "I'm the clay, You're the Potter", then followed by the climatic line "I'm Your child, You're my Father",  because poetic rule- keep the thought going in the same line....
So, that's how I sing it.

Does anyone have the chords to this song. I love it!
Posted:  18 May 2011 14:59
DOES ANYONE KNOW GUITAR CHORDS ?
Posted:  18 May 2011 20:30
the third verse is: "For everytime that I have failed. each time i stumbled and sin prevailed. you picked me up and set my feet on solid ground. why you should love me i sure don't know but i'll keep singing as i go Lord you're the best thing thats ever happened to me."

Do you know where I Can buy the piano sheet music to this song? My grandfather passed away this weekend and he always sang this at church... I would love to be able to play it for my grandmother.
Thanks,
Charity
Have a blessed day

I sing this song all the time at church....it is my testimony word for word.  I want to say thank you for the 3rd verse , i wasnt aware that it existed , and amazingly enough fits my testimony to the T.  I play by ear on the guitar and the chords G C D work very well throughout the entire song.  God Bless you all.
