Firefighter's Prayer

When I am called to duty, Wherever flames may rage, Give me the strangth to save a 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 God's will I must answer to death's call, Bless with your protecting hand, My family one and all.

I found this poem on the back of a pamphlet entitled Remembrance: September 11, 2001.
