As I perform my duties
And do my very best
To keep my fellowman from harm
And put their mind to rest.
Use my skills and judgment
To help and honor mankind
Please keep me safe from danger
God's face I'll always find.
I give my life to my work
Some people don't understand
As I face danger and fear each day
I help my fellowman.
I stand ready at each and every call
Not looking for glory each day
Yet putting my life on the line
And paving a safer way.
So when you see a policeman
Ask God to watch him from above
For he is out there protecting you
He needs your support and your love.
