How to call a remote JavaScript code in some code deposit (such as GitHub)?

I want to call a remote JavaScript code which is located in GitHub (raw version), from my web browser’s user script manager (Tampermonkey).

The JavaScript code on GitHub was already tested locally (by copy-pasting it into the browser’s console and executing it) and is working.

I tried to call the remote script this way:

var githubScript = document.createElement('script');
script.type = 'text/javascript';
script.src = 'GITHUB_URL';

But, the only output I get in console is the file itself (i.e. no execution of the actual code in the file occurs).

Please suggest what have I done wrong (perhaps I lack a command to actually run the code?).

There are libraries such as jsdelivr that are designed to let you load code from github repositories.
