Fireman’s Prayer

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

Help me embrace a little child,
Before it’s 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 his property.

And if according to your will,
I have to give my life,
Please bless with your protecting hand,
My children and my wife.
