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

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

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 be done for others.

 Let “Self” be crucified and slain
 And buried deep: and all in vain
 May efforts be to rise again,
 Except to live for others.

So when my work on earth is done,
And my new work in heav’n’s begun,
I’ll praise You for the crown I’ve won,
But praise You more for others.
