    Oh heavenly father keep my mind towards the light.

    I walk among the belly of the beast.


    I come in all colors I the warrior of the streets.

    I am judged by many who see's me through the
    the eyes of the un just.



    I am the warrior of peace, many see me as the enemy,



    I come in the name of justice,



    to maintain humanities for all human being.



    I walk upon the battle field each and every day.



    I walk with you dear lord, within the ghettos of war.



    I cry within the mist of the night, the terrior of a hell, I must not look back, I the police of you dear God.



    Give me strength that I shall wall in the belly of t he beast for my cup run over, the death of thy brother, has over whelm me within the curse of the earth.




    I walk within the battlefield of the devil,



    I shall fear no evil for thou art with thee,



    I walk into the wars of the earth,



    I the love, the peace maker of your faith,



    I have seen the dead,



    an the killers of men.







    I have seen the cage birds that implement hate,

    among the angels of the earth.



    My family suffers each day, I leave home,
    give them strength until I return home.



    Thy rod an staff shall comfort me.
    In the name of you my God,
    You are the eyes that I may see,
    the courage that I may lead,
    the walls that I may not fall an become weak.



    I the soldier of you my lord.







    Fear that sets before my feet,



    bravery that I must maintain.



    Prayers that I seek,



    Many who hate me,



    when I do your work dear lord.







    The symbols that the devils set before me,
    I the warrior of your turf,
    I fight for peace, and honor within all men.
    Many come within my name,
    protect me lord from those who bring shame.
    Protect me from my self,
    if I fall short in the purpose of your call.
    I give thee life, as my brother for me.
    I the warrior of your kingdom let peace be still.

    this is wonderfully done dedicated to a profession that really doesn't get much respect...i'm hoping to become a police officer myself and this was very inspiring to me. thank you.
