Firefighter'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 to give the best in me,
To guard my friend and neighbor
And protect their property.


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