  1. KJ, thanks for this. I have this LP and like it enough to keep. I especially like the more uptempo track #6.

    Here's a text file for it:

    CHILDREN OF THE DAY - Come To The Waters
    (Maranatha HS 777/2) 1971 MP3@192

    Reissued on Light Records ‎– LS-5713 in 1976

    Children Of The Day are definitely up there near the top as my favorite American folk-rock group. It’s no wonder the Maranatha folks selected them for the first full-length debut on their fledgling label. Going beyond just the guitar and vocal
    harmonies that often characterized early Jesus music, this guy/gal foursome
    (Peter Jacobs, Marsha Carter/Stevens, Wendy Carter, Russ Stevens) successfully weaved in such instruments as piano, harpsichord, woodwinds and strings and made it all work without sounding syrupy. The song-writing is exceptional,
    the arrangements unique and the harmonizing immaculate. Never humdrum, with lots of variety, from stirring ballads (‘Jesus’) to up-tempo folk-rock (‘Children Of The Day’, ‘Jesus Lives’) to four-part Bach (‘All Breathing Life’). The slower songs are intensely moving, including the climactic ‘The Search’, the somber ballad ‘As
    A Child’ and the joyful opener ‘New Life’. Mostly original material, plus a cover of Love Song’s ‘Two Hands’. And of course there’s Marsha’s ‘For Those Tears I Died’ which has become a classic “golden oldie” of the Jesus movement. A great
    beginning for a great band.
