1. 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.

2. 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. [Refrain]

3. Let Self be crucified and slain
And buried deep: and all in vain
May efforts be to rise again,
Unless to live for—Others. [Refrain]

4. 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. [Refrain]
