The Firemen's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God, whenever fire may rage,
give me strength to save a life, whatever be its age.
Help me to embrace a child before it is too late,
or save an elder person from the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout,
to quickly and efficiently put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling, and to give the best in me,
to guard my every neighbor and protect their property.
And if according to my fate, I am to lose my life,
please bless with your protective hand, my family, friends and wife.
