essex fire


When I am called to duty, God,
Where the flames may rage,
Give me strength to save some life
Whatever be its age.

Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late,
Or save some older person from
The horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert,
And hear the weakest shout
And quickly and effectively
To put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling
And give the best in me.
To guard my every neighbor
And protect his property.

And if according to Your will,
I have to lose my life
Please bless with Your protecting hand
My children and my wife.
