Let Me Be Useful


Let not my life be useless, Lord...But help my heart to be...
Of some enduring benefit... To all humanity... I want to do
the best I can... As long as I am here... To light the way for
someone else... With kindliness and cheer... To do a worthy
deed or two... And generously give... Whatever I can do with-
out... To help my neighbor live... I want to be of service, Lord
... And answer every call... With words of gentle sympathy
... And charity to all... Enable me to rise above... The bitter-
ness of strife... And every moment of each day... To live a
useful life.
