Firefighter's Prayer
When I am called to duty, God
Whenever 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
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 of me
To guard my every neighbor and
Protect his property.

And if according to my fate
I answer to death's call,
Please bless with your protecting hand
My family one and all.
