When I am called to Duty, God,
Whenever 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 an older person
From the horror 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 neighbour
And protect his property.
And if, according to my fate,
I am to lose my life,
Please bless with your protecting
My fellow firefighters
