|A POLICEMAN'S PRAYER
OH, LORD, WHILE I'M ON MY BEAT
HELP ME TO IGNORE THOSE WHO SCORN
BE WITH MY FELLOW OFFICERS
MAY I NOT DISGRACE THE UNIFORM
|THE POLICE OFFICER'S LIFE
I have been where you fear to be.
I have seen what you fear to see.
I have done what you fear to do.
All these things I've done for you.
I am the one you lean upon.
The one you cast your scorn upon.
The one you bring your troubles to,
All these people I've been for you.
The one you ask to stand apart.
The one you feel should have no heart.
The one you call the officer in blue,
But I am human, just like you.
And through the years I've come to see
That I am not what you ask of me.
So take this badge and take this gun.
Will you take it? Will anyone?
And when you watch a person die,
And hear a battered baby cry.
Then do you think that you can be
All these things you ask of me?
Killed a Trooper Today
SOME BODY KILLED A TROOPER
TODAY AND A PART
OF AMERICA DIED.
A PIECE OF OUR COUNTRY HE SWORE TO PROTECT WILL BE BURIED WITH HIM AT HIS SIDE.
THE SUSPECT WHO SHOT HIM WILL STAND UP IN COURT, WITH COUNSEL DEMANDING HIS RIGHTS.
WHILE A YOUNG WIDOWED WIFE MUST WORK AND SPEND MANY LONG LONELY NIGHTS.
THE PATROL HE COVERED WAS A BATTLEFIELD TOO. JUST AS IF HE HAD GONE OFF TO WAR.
THOUGH THE FLAG OF OUR NATION
WON'T FLY AT HALF MAST,
YES, SOMEBODY KILLED A TROOPER
WHILE WE SLEPT IN COMFORT BEHIND OUR LOCKED DOORS, A TROOPER PUT HIS LIFE ON THE LINE.
NOW HIS SPIRIT PATROLS THE DARK HIGHWAYS AND BYWAYS AND HE STANDS AT EACH TROOPER,S SIDE.
MARC ANSWERED THE CALL, AND
GAVE US HIS ALL.
THIS TRIBUTE TO TPR. MARC CHARBONIER, MASS. STATE POLICE. WAS ADAPTED
Thank you to 13 year old, Timothy Kennard for providing the piping
music for Amazing Grace, that plays in the background.
