A Fireman’s 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 horror of that fate.
    Enable me to be alert and
    Hear the weakest shout,
    And quickly and efficiently
    To put the fire out.
    I want to fill my calling
    And give the best in me,
    To guard my every neighbor
    And protect their property.
    And if according to your will
    I should lose my life,
    Please bless with your protecting hand
    My children and my wife.
