Memorial

 

 

 

 

Fireman's Prayer


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

Help me embrace a little child,
Before its is too late
or save some older person
from the horrors 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 your will,
I have to lose my life,
please bless with your protecting hand
my children and my wife.
