When I am called to duty, God
whenever flames may rage,
Give me the strength to save some life
whatever be its age.
Help me to embrace a little child before itís too late,
Or some 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 give the best in me,
to guard my 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
- A.W. "Smokey" Linn. (1958)
