randy Edwish

When I am called to duty, God,
 
whenever flames may rage,

Give me the 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 every neighbor

and protect his property.

And if according to my fate

I am to lose my life,

Please bless with your protecting hand

My children and my wife.
