I never dreamed it would be me,
My name for all eternity,
Recorded here at this hallowed place
Alas, my name, no more my face

"In the line of duty," I hear them say:
My family now the price to pay.
My folded flag stained with their tears;
We only had those few short years.

The badge no longer on my chest,
I sleep now in eternal rest.

My sword I pass to those behind,
And pray they keep this thought in mind.

When I start my tour of duty God
Wherever crime may be,
As I walk the darkened streets alone,
Let me be close to Thee.

Please give me understanding
With both the young and old,
Let me listen with attention
Until their story's told.

Let me never make a judgment
In a rash or callous way,
But let me hold my patience,
Let each man have his say.

Lord, if some dark and dreary night,
I must give up my life.
Lord, with your understanding love,
Protect my children and wife.
