For Others


Lord, let me live from day to dayIn such a self-forgetful way,That, even when I kneel to pray,My prayer shall be for others.

Help me, in all the work I do,Ever to be sincere and true,And know that all I'd do for Thee,Must needs be done for Others.

Let "self" be crucified and slain,And buried deep, nor rise again;And may all efforts be in vain,Unless they be for Others.

And when my work on earth is done,And my new work in heaven begunMay I forget the crown I've won,While thinking still of Others.

Yes, Others, Lord, yes, Others.Let this motto be;Help me to live for Others,That I may live with Thee.
