Godspell, the second musical of the early '70s to be based on the life of Jesus Christ (following Jesus Christ Superstar, which hit the record racks, but not the stage first), was something of a sleeper, opening off-off-Broadway in May 1971, with an original cast album that belatedly became a big success in 1972 after "Day By Day". was released as a single and hit the Top Ten. By then, the show had moved to off-Broadway and was well on its way to a run that would exceed 2,500 performances (and eventually reach Broadway itself)
Now instead of Hippy Clowns we have I-phone addicted yuppies transformed into vibrant urban street performers. If you are a die-hard Godspell fan from the 70's and have never seen a modernized version, this may sound slightly foreign to you (I imagine it's like being French and listening to a French Canadian speak). however if you have an open mind to embrace Godspell in modern times, and/or have seen a modern version; I highly recommend. Stephen Schwartz is both the original composer, and composed the updated score - and I appreciate both his respect to the original, while carrying us forward in time.
The version in Godspell follows more closely the wording in Hymn 429 of the 1940 Hymnal: Day by day, Dear Lord, of thee three things I pray: To see thee more clearly, Love thee more dearly, Follow thee more nearly, Day by da.Day By Day" was first a hit in Australia, where both Judy Stone and Colleen Hewett released competing versions of the track in late 1971.
