"Help me to live for others, that I may live like Thee."
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.
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,
Unless to live for others.
And when my work on earth is done,
And my new work in Heav'n's begun,
May I forget the race I've run,
And praise my Lord with others.
