In Honor of Donnie Adkins (3/24/10)

In honor of Donnie Adkins. Donnie was a member of the Glasgow Volunteer Fire Department and will be honored with a fireman's funeral on Wednesday 3/24/10 at Riverside High School.

When I am called to duty, God
Wherever flames may rage,
Give me the strength to save some life
Whatever be its age
Help me 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 efficiently
To put the fire out
I want to fill my calling
And give the best in me
To guard my every neighbor
And protect their property
And if according to your will
I should lose my life
Please bless with your protecting hand
My children and my wife
