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'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 effectively
To put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling
And to give the best in me,
To guard my every neighbour
And protect his property.
And if, according to 'Your will',
I have to lose my life,
Please bless with Your protecting hand
My family and my friends.
Amen

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
