Day by Day

Prayer is to the soul as breath to the body.  A thirteenth-century pray became the lyrics for a popular song in the musical Godspell.

The original prayer was written by Richard of Chichester (1107-1253):

 O most merciful Redeemer, Friend, and Brother,

May we know Thee more clearly,

Love Thee more dearly, and

Follow Thee more nearly;

For Thine own sake.  Amen.
