OTHERS

Lord, help me live from day to day
In such a self-forgetful way
That even when I kneel to pray
My prayers will be for—OTHERS.

Help me in all the work I do
To ever be sincere and true
And know that all I'd do for you
Must needs to done for—OTHERS.

Let “self” be crucified and slain
And buried deep; and all in vain
May efforts be to rise again
Unless to live for—OTHERS.

And when my work on earth is done,
And my new work in heaven’s begun,
May I forget the crown I’ve won
While thinking still of—OTHERS.

Others, Lord, yes, others
Let this my motto be,
Help me to live for others,
That I may live like Thee.
