Deputy Sheriff’s Prayer


When I start my tour of duty God,

      Wherever crime may be,
        As I drive the darkened streets,      
l et 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 my life,
Lord with your everlasting love
protect my family.
