When duty call's me, oh Lord, 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 oh Lord, guide my every move, for life is so precious, please don't let us loose.

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 thy will, That I must give my life, Then with thy protecting hand my Lord, I pray thee, protect my children and my wife.

Amen
