All Good Things Will Be Added Unto You!

Saturday, August 27, 2011


Am I the only one who still gets goose bumps whenever I see this episode of the Cosby Show? Are you familiar? It’s the episode when Cliff and Claire Huxtable bring their children to their alma mater, Hillman College. In this episode, Cliff is participating in a ceremony honoring the retiring President of Hillman, and Claire leads the Hillman Glee Club in a soul-stirring rendition of “All Good Things Will Be Added Unto You.” 

I don’t know what it is, but since I was a child, this episode has always moved me. Is the fact that I absolutely love and admire the characters that are the Huxtables? Is it the fact that Mrs. Huxtable is singing in historic Sister’s Chapel at Spelman College, which would inevitably become my beloved alma mater? Is it the song’s lyrics? I don’t know what it is, but every time I see this episode, I get a little misty-eyed. I can’t help but share this with you all. 

For your convenience, I have added the lyrics to this song below…extremely powerful! Have a great Saturday!




All Good Things Will Be Added Unto You - by Shelton Becton

Seek ye first the kingdom of His love
Make Him first in everything you do
If you'll just trust and never doubt what He said
All Good Things Will Be Added Unto You.

He's got everything you need
All He ask is that you heed
And be faithful till the very end
When that judgment day has come
Don't you want to be the one
Just to see his face and call him friend

Seek ye first the kingdom of His love
Make Him first in everything you do
If you'll just trust and never doubt what He said
All Good Things Will Be Added Unto You

O-M-G I thought I was the only one to get goose bumps from this episode! Oooh you took it back when you reminded me that she was singing in Sister's Chapel. Love me some Phylicia Rashad.

Thanks for this, it was just what I needed today.

That Episode and especially that moment was "PRICELESS." "ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS."
