Was it pride or was it fear
That caused a tremor in my heart
When the badge was pinned upon my chest?
“Kingdom Of Heaven Fire Department”—
My life now dedicated to fighting the fires of hate—
I’ve been burned
Trying to stamp out fires
In my human insecurity,
But when I spray the flames
With the Holy Spirit’s quenching power
Only God knows what miracles will take place…
I stumble along in a feeble attempt
To walk by faith,
Trying to use a hose that could destroy me,
But in spite of my blunders,
The Captain sends me to the front—
See the flames disappear!
Watch the fire extinguished!
See the hearts once torn
Bound together in love…
“Blessed are the peacemakers”—
Somehow, in my novice attempts
At fighting a fire I could not quench,
The fire now backs away,
The Spirit vanquishes hate—
…And I am called a son of God…
