In honor of Cleveland Police Officer David Fahey

“POLICEMAN’S PRAYER” 

 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 and

let each man have his say.

 Lord if some dark and dreary night,

I must give my life,

Lord, with your everlasting love

protect my children and my wife.
