The Fire Fighters' Creed

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 neighbour and
protect his property.

And if according to Your will
I have to lose my life
bless with Your protecting hand
my children and my wife.
