Gloucester’s Finest GFD




When I am called to duty,
Wherever flames may rage
Give me strength to save some 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 and
hear the weakest shout,
And quickly and effeciently
To put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling and
To give the best in me
To guard my friend and neighbor
And protect his property.
And if according to my fate
I am to lose my life
Please bless with your protecting hand
My children and my wife.
