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
