Fire Chief's Prayer
called to many duties Lord and now I've been called home.
I've had to leave the ones I love to stand before Your throne.
I'll not complain, its not my way but there are some things I'll ask.
And please , Lord, grant them to me for the loved ones I hold fast.
I dare to ask because I know how You've blessed in the past.
I've learned to trust in Your grace, O Lord that's how I've come this far.
So now, O God, I humbly pray hear this Fire Chief's prayer.
Bless my wife and family -- so often left alone, they knew where I was
going and trusted You to bring me home.
Well, now I'm home and wait for them keep them within the faith -- that
one day, someday, we'll be together in this place.
And O dear God, bless my men I trained them as best I could.
I tried to do Your will with them and lead them as You would.
I need to know Your with them Lord or else how can I stay and peacefully
enjoy this place of endless day.
This heaven where there is no night no fire to kill and burn I guess
that's why its now my rest, my place, my turn.
And Lord, be with my community and keep it safe as it can be for all its
folks are special, and very dear to me.
They are all my friends, and by Your grace I served them as best I could.
So hear this Fire Chief's prayer, O Lord and grant it please -- I already
knew You would.
