Gospel Music: Better Than Blessed · Louise "Candy" Davis


Wow!

I love this song!

I discovered a completely awesome video of a baby boy singing his heart out along to a great old Gospel song (and I'll be posting that video here asap). 

Along with loving that video I found myself enthralled by the song he was singing along to.

Having never heard it — and with little info in the video description about it— I had to do some internet sleuthing to discover more about it.

I quickly discovered it is called "Better Than Blessed" by Louise "Candy" Davis (1939 - 2005).

She was a beloved Gospel singer and Better Than Blessed was her "signature song."

I decided to share two videos in today's post:  One a studio version of the song by Davis, and also a "live" version at the bottom of this post.

I like the live version better than the studio version but the audio quality on it is a little low — but please feel free to give them both a listen and decide for yourself.

The lyrics are posted under the first video too.

Anywho — I hope you'll feel BETTER THAN BLESSED as you listen to this wonderful song!

Better Than Blessed - Lyrics

I’m Blessed,
Better than Blessed,
Praise the Lord!
I’m blessed,
Better than Blessed,
Praise the Lord!

I may not have houses and wealth,
I may not have all my strength and health
But I’m Blessed,
Better than Blessed,
Praise the Lord!

Many times I've had to learn my lesson,
For I did not — I did not appreciate my Blessings,
I complained that I had no shoes,
But then I saw a man,
Who had no feet to use,
And I’m Blessed,
Better than Blessed,
Thank you Lord!

I’ve got no mind,
To complain at any time,
For God has mixed my clouds — He mixed my clouds with His Bright Sunshine,
Though this is a rough and rocky road I’m on,

I know, I know, It’ll take my poor soul on home,
And I know I’m Blessed,
Oh, Better than Blessed,
Thank you Lord!

I’ve got God the Father above me,
I’ve got his son, Jesus Christ, walking beside me,
You see I’ve got the Holy Spirit, Within me,
And I’ve got all of God’s Angels all around me,
And I know I’m Blessed,
Better, Better than Blessed,
Thank you Lord!

I’m Blessed,
Better than Blessed,
Thank Lord!

Hallelujah!

I’m Blessed,
Better than Blessed,
Thank you Lord!

I may not have houses and wealth,
And I may not — I may not — have all my strength and health,
But STILL I’m blessed,
Better, Better than Blessed,
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Lord!

I’m Blessed,
Better, Better than Blessed,
I want to thank you Lord!
Thank you Lord, Thank you Lord!

I know I'm Blessed,
Even better than Blessed,
Thank you Lord!
Thank you Lord!

I'm Blessed,
Better than Blessed,
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Lord!

I'm Blessed,
Better than Blessed,
Thank you Lord!
Thank you Lord!
Thank you Lord!
