Sacred Music Friday: Day by DayPosted: September 9, 2016
Richard of Chichester, 1197-1253, wrote these words that today we know so well from the musical Godspell.
O most merciful Redeemer, friend and brother,
May I know Thee more clearly,
Love Thee more dearly,
Follow Thee more nearly, day by day.
It’s been more than two years since I’ve shared this song, so I think that it is time to do so again, particularly since I’m working on internalizing the words for myself. By the way, the last time I shared the song I used this marvelous studio version from the revival.
