1.  Lord, for tomorrow and its needs

I do not pray;

Keep me, O God, from stain of sin,

Just for today,

Refrain:

Just for today,

Just for today,

Keep me, O God, from stain of sin,

Just for today.

2.  Let me both diligently work

And duly pray;

Let me be kind in word and deed,

Just for today,

Refrain

3.  Let me no wrong or idle word

Unthinkingly say;

Set thou a seal upon my lips,

Just for today,

Refrain

4.  So, for tomorrow and its needs

I do not pray;

But keep me, guide me, love me, Lord,

Just for today,

Refrain
