Others

Words: Charles D. Meigs, 1917.

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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

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

Amen! Beautiful words and so very, very true. Jesus put others before self and thus we should do the same! Walk in love! Walk in love! Walk in love!

Love you sis!

Hello Hanna,

It is good to begin reading my favorite blogs once again.

These are some true words and need to be done, i have found that the only way that i can keep my mind on others and live for others is to first live for Him. He restores and refuels so that we can begin again to give ourselves to others.

Very Nice Post. So hard to put others first, but I know it is what we are called to do. May God help us in this New Year to truly serve others with other centered love. Blessings to you.
