“Day by Day”

Thank you for the emails that came in overnight and today with condolences for our losing Cuddy, they have been salve on our hearts.

Please know how much each of you are appreciated and I will reply to each email, text, and snail mail letter individually. 

Instead of a planned theme topic of remembering to get out and vote today I wanted to share the hope and uplifting message I am finding in the 1971 song “Day by Day” from the musical “Godspell”.

There is this YouTube I came across from 2012 and it shows “Playbill found composer Stephen Schwartz in the studio leading the Broadway revival troupe of “Godspell” in the recording of their cast album, complete with lyrical tweaks and new arrangements. 

“Day by day, oh dear Lord, three things I pray

To see thee more clearly

Love thee more dearly

Follow thee more nearly, day by day”. 

And if you would like to hear the original – at the 2:00 minute mark they talk about the cast album and includes Robin Lamont performing “Day by Day” on The Today Show.

Again, my heartfelt sincere thank you for your kindness and understanding.   I hope the lyrics from this song are of some comfort for you too should you be looking for some encouragement today.


Anchors Aweigh,  

Helen
