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 Ė others.

Help me in all the work I do,

To ever be sincere and true,

And know that all Iíd do for you

Must needs be done for - others.

And when my work on earth is done,

And my new work in Heavenís begun,

May I forget the crown Iíve won,

While thinking still of Ė others.
