Rescue Diver's Prayer

When I'm called to duty God, To dive beneath the waves, To search for an unfortunate soul, Whose body thy have claimed. Let swiftness be my virtue, To find that soul in time, Please let this be a rescue Lord, And not the "other kind". Be my eyes in the darkest lake, And guide me with your hand, That this person be saved, When we return to land. If this is not your will, Oh Lord, Then please show me the way, To sort out this mystery, And dive another day. If things become their darkest Lord, And its me that you call home, Please guide my friends and family, That they'll never walk alone.
