1Lord, for tomorrow and its needs
I do not pray;
Keep me from stain of sin and wrong,
Just for today.
Just for today,
Just for today,
Keep me from stain of sin and wrong,
Just for today.
2Let me both diligently work
And duly pray;
Let me be kind in word and deed,
Just for today.
Just for today,
Just for today,
Let me be kind in word and deed,
Just for today.
3Let me be swift to do Thy will,
Prompt to obey;
Help me to sacrifice myself,
Just for today.
Just for today,
Just for today,
Help me to sacrifice myself,
Just for today.
4Let me no wrong or idle word
Unthinking say;
Set Thou a seal upon my lips,
Just for today.
Just for today,
Just for today,
Set Thou a seal upon my lips,
Just for today.
5So, for tomorrow and its needs
I do not pray;
But keep me, guide me, hold me, Lord,
Just for today.
Just for today,
Just for today,
But keep me, guide me, hold me, Lord,
Just for today.
