Representative Text

1 As I have been helped by the Savior,
Help me to help others I pray;
Bless me and then make me a blessing,
Help me to help others today.

Refrain:
O Savior, use me in Thy service,
For time swiftly passes away;
Make my life a blessing to others,
Help me to help others today.

2 Help me to help lighten some labor,
Some tears to help banish away;
May I spread the gospel of sunshine,
Help me to help others today. [Refrain]

3 If I should be needed in battle,
O arm me dear Lord for the fray;
By standing for right and conviction,
Help me to help others today. [Refrain]

4 By pointing poor sinners t’ward heaven,
By helping weak souls on the way;
By telling the love of the Savior,
Help me to help others today. [Refrain]

Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J.
