Gift From Heaven


Lord, let 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 live for others
so that I may live like Thee.
Help me in everything I do,
to ever be sincere and true,
And know that all I'd do for You
must needs be done for others.
And when my work on earth is done,
and my new work in Heav'n begun,
Help me forget the crown I've won
while thinking still of others.
