I say to you this morningThat if you have never found something so dear and so precious to youThat you will die for it, then you aren’t fit to liveYou may be 38 years old as I happen to beAnd one day, some great opportunity stands before youAnd calls upon you to stand up for some great principleSome great issue, some great causeAnd you refuse to do it because you are afraidYou refuse to do it because you wanna live longerYou’re afraid that you will lose your jobOr you’re afraid that you will be criticizedOr that you will lose your popularityOr you’re afraid that somebody will stab you or shoot at you or bomb your houseAnd so you refuse to take the standWell, you may go on and live until you are 90But you’re just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90And the sensation of breathing in your life is butThe belated announcement of an earlier death of the spiritYou died when you refused to stand up for rightYou died when you refused to stand up for truthYou died when you refused to stand up for justice
