When I am called to duty, God, wherever flames may rage,
give me strength to save some life whatever be its age.
Help me embrace a little child before it’s 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 effectively 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 your will I have to lose my life,
please bless, with your protecting hand, my family and my wife.
