When I am called to duty, God Wherever 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 their property
And if according to your will I have to lose my life Please bless with your protecting hand My children and my wife (spouse)
