They always knew they could be

They never thought they would be

God knows none ever should be

Killed in the line of duty


Some made their final stand

Their profession’s last demand

They fell with gun in hand

Killed in the line duty


A routine to many a cop

Some made one final stop

Someone’s Mom or Pop

Killed in the line of duty


Others answered one last call

To a robbery, theft, or brawl

They arrived only to fall

Killed in the line of duty


Some were dressed in brown, some blue

Some in gray, and plain clothes too

Some were dressed like me and you

Killed in the line of duty


May their souls be forever blessed

For they who are now at rest

Died doing what they loved best

Killed in the line of duty


Forgotten they never could be

Forgotten they never should be

Thought they never would be

Killed in the line of duty


God bless all those who fell

They are missed and loved so well

Let us pray and toll the bell

Those killed in the line of duty


Amen
