Woke up this morning to an orange-brown haze
These fires have been burning for many long days
Will they be able to put out the blaze?
Heaven help the firefighter today.
"It looks like a war zone", I heard someone say.
Others call it "moonscape", all dead, dark, and gray.
The ash falls like snowflakes, even miles away.
Dear God, please help the firefighters today.
Town after town, the fire burns on.
The firefighters are out there, some for too long.
Dog-tired and weary, but still they move on.
Please don't forget the firefighters today.
May they find comfort and strength in Your care.
Their courage must take them where no one else dares.
Their lives on the line; please be aware--
The firefighter is out there, working today.
