from another magazine:

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

-Rev. Martin Niemoller, a German pastor during World War II who fell out of favor with Hitler, was arrested for treason, and spent time in concentration camps.

God of Wonders
Beyond our galaxy–
You are holy,
holy.
The universe declares your majesty–
You are holy,
holy…
Lord of Heaven and Earth!

Lord of Heaven and Earth:
Halleluljah!
To the Lord of Heaven Earth!
You are holy…


“Who can stand before God, this holy God?”

(1 Samuel 6:20)
