My mother passed away last week and she loved the song "Other". I am looking for the score to the hymn "Others", but am unable to find it in the hymnals at our church. This is an old hymn and is not written by Israel Houghton, who song titled "Others" is not the same words. The Author is unknown. Here are the lyrics if anyone can help;
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.
Others, Lord, yes others,
Let this my motto be,
Help me to live for others,
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,
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 crown I’ve won,
While thinking still of—Others.
