In response to shootings of police officers around the nation

Faithful men together serve, protecting us, they have the nerve

Facing down what we would not, sometimes they have to fire a shot

Desire to help and lend a hand, put on the shield and take a stand

Punish crime and do what’s right, they’re serving late into the night

Pursuing justice at all costs, praying zero lives are lost

Their families love and wish their best, on those who daily don the vest

Their hope’s reborn with each new day, that they will make it through the fray

Their loved ones can’t with certainty, know they’ll come back home to be

Their father, mother, husband, wife, that they have known most all their life

They daily dread that phone call, brief, officer down, they’re left with grief

Out on patrol, they do their best, to be alert for each behest

Supermen and women too, all take the heat for what they do

Accountable to every one, for all their battles, lost or won

No secret foe that they can’t meet, while they’re walking on their beat

Good examples that they are, impact lives both near and far

The hope we had back years ago, is melting like a lava flow

It seems this world is headed down, from peace to war, it’s dying frown

God’s law today is worthless to, those who want to take from you

Protect us now from worthless men, who hate their fathers, not their sin

Their rebellion eggs them on, they reject God’s only Son

The call comes in and out they go, how will it end, they do not know

When threats exist they man their post, it’s public safety they want most

Protecting all who come their way, no matter what they have to say

When others freeze, they will respond, they give their best, their word’s their bond

Facing down both gun and knife, giving life for valued life
