Day by Day – and Good Friday


“Day by Day”
Richard Chichester
(1197-1253)

Thanks be to thee,
Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits
which thou hast won for us,
for all the pains and insults
which thou hast borne for us.
O most merciful Redeemer,
Friend and Brother,
may we know thee more clearly,
love thee more dearly,
and follow thee more nearly,
day by day.
It  is  Good  Friday  today,  when  we  remember  what  Jesus  did  for  us  on  the  cross.  Please  take  a  few  extra  moments  with me  to  reflect  on  these  classic  masterpieces  and  poems,  as  well  as  my  essay  on  the   cross: Holy Week: Good Friday

I also invite you to visit my Holy Week and Easter page.
Grace and peace,
Virginia Knowles
