When I'm called to duty God

Wherever flames may rage

Give me strength to save a life

Whatever be its age


Help me to 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

To 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 you will

I have to loose my life

Please bless with your protecting hand

My children and my wife
