To the Firefighter

The Guardian Angels in our life Are those who chose to serve Those who sit there waiting What’s around the next curve Men and Women who have dedicated Their very lives to us Who face the dangers daily To you our lives we trust These wonderful selfless people Will be there when we call No matter what danger they face They always give their all The fire fighters needs come last when that siren blows He is running to protect us For time is short he knows They put their lives on the line For strangers they never met But the care and protection given Is truly without regret! I want to thank the fire fighters For everything they do You give us all great comfort In the work that you pursue From each fire that you fight To each child that you save To the vision of a crumbled car To the comfort that you gave We thank you for all you’ve done For all that will come to be We pray for each one’s safety God provide each firefighters needs Be with each one as they struggle Through the pain they will face Give them strength to carry on Rain down on them your Grace. For each of them are Angels Sent to help us along the way What precious dedication That could never be repaid
