A Firefighters Prayer

When I am called to duty, God
Wherever flames may rage,
Give me strength to save some life.
Whatever be its age.

Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late
Or save an older person from
The honor of that fate

Enable me to be alert
To the weakest shout
And quickly and efficiently
To put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling and
To give the best of me
To guard my every neighbor and
protect his property.

And if according to my fate
I am to lose my life
Please bless with your protecting hand
my family and my wife.
