Early in the morning the officer would pray,
"Help me, dear Jesus to lead someone to you today.
Let my life be a living example for you.
If not in my life, let my death bring others to you".
The gun shot was heard as it echoed through town,
As a bullet lodged within his chest, as he fell down.
God forgive me, he anxiously prayed,
As his blood flowed fast, right where he laid.
Bleak despair hung low for the officer, that day.
