WEEP FOR THE WORLD - PRAY IF YOU WILL

 
 
How many helpless victims have to suffer
Before the people rise up against injustice ?

How long can you count your money,
And contemplate your ipod -
 
Before you suddenly realize that
What has happened to others,
 
 
 
Is about to happen to you?
 
 
First they came for the communists,
And I didn't speak up,
Because I wasn't a communist.
 
Then they came for the Jews
And I didn't speak up
Because I wasn't a Jew.
 
Then they came for the trade unionists,
And I didn't speak up,
Because I wasn't a trade unionist.
 
Then they came for the Catholics,
And I didn't speak up,
Because I was a Protestant.
 
Then they came for me,
And by that time - 
 
There was no one left to speak up.

How long can you be neutral and silent ?
 
Weep for the world,
Pray if you will.
 
Then get off your duff,
And do what you can
To make things better.
