Correction Officer's Prayer
when it's time to go inside that place of steel and stone,
I pray that you will keep me safe, So I won't walk alone.
Help me to do my duty, Please watch me on my rounds, Among those perilous places, And slamming steel door sounds.
Keep my fellow officers well and free from harm, Let them know I'll be there too, Whenever there's alarm.
Above all when I walk my beat, No matter where I roam
let me get back to whence I came, to my family and home.
