    Default Fireman's Prayer

    I forgot to put the words in my last post, So here they are:

    The Fireman's Prayer
    Chorus: Lay me down beside cool water,
    And lay to rest my body sore.
    Send the word out to my brothers
    The fire is down, let it burn no more.

    1) Let me be ready Lord when the call comes in;
    When the sirens wail and the engines strain;
    When the smoke is thick and the air is thin;
    When innocent lives, in the balance hang.

    2) I've trained hard Lord and I've learned well.
    That I'm just one part of a human chain,
    Though it's been forged in the fires of hell.
    Still I've known fear Lord, and I've prayed for rain.

    3) If my brother goes down Lord, let me be near.
    Won't you let me have what the flames demand.
    Won't you give him voice, O Lord, and let me hear
    And give me the reach Lord, for his outstretched hand.

    4) Let me be ready Lord if it comes my turn.
    Won't you let me be strong, let me not complain.
    Won't you let me go in and with a child return
    Take me young Lord, but not in vain.
