“Day by Day”Was Written By An Obscure Saint

Do you remember this song, Day by Day in the Broadway play “GodSpell”? Well, it is based on a prayer from the 13th century by St. Richard of Chichester 

Thanks be to Thee, my Lord Jesus Christ, for all the benefits Thou hast given me, for all the pains and insults which Thou hast borne for me.
O most merciful Redeemer, Friend, and Brother,
may I know Thee more clearly, love Thee more dearly,
follow Thee more nearly, day by day. Amen


  1. I did not know that. Thank you Melanie.

    I think he should take the producers of the musical to Court for lost royalties.

    God bless.
