A Fireman's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God wherever flames may rage - Give me the 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 to give the best in me - To guard my every neighbor and protect their property
And if according to your will I have to lose my life - Please bless with your protecting hand my children and my wife
