Lord, help me to 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 Thee
Must needs be done for others.
And when my work on Earth is done,
And my new work in Heaven begun,
May I forget the crown I 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 like Thee.
-- C.D. Meigs
My sister memorized this poem when we were younger, and I remember the first and last stanza quite well. This is an excellent poem to remind us of our duty towards others.
