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 do for You
Must needs be done for “Others”.
And when my work on earth is done,
And my new work in Heavens begun
May I forget the crown I’ve won,
While thinking still of “Others”.
“Others.” Lord, yes, “Others!”
Let this my motto be.
Help me to live for others
That I may live for Thee.
My garden beautifies my yard
and adds fragrance to the air. . .
But it is also my cathedral
and my quiet place of prayer. . .
So little do we realize
that “The Glory and The Power”
Of He who made the universe
lies hidden in a flower
