Bravest hearts of purest courage
In the fear and in the flames.
Noble heroes to be honoured
In our memories carve their names.

Who could run into such danger
When life's sweet and love is true?
Who could die to save a stranger?
Who could live as heroes do?

M. Vassallo

"Lay me down beside cool waters,
and lay to rest my body sore.
Send the word out to my brothers,
the fire is down, let it burn no more."

Charles Ball
Fireman's Prayer
