Grant me to witness through the veil of death
my people at their high triumphant feast.

I fail, and sink in thine eternity,
but see my people marching forward, free.

God quick to punish sin or to forgive,
thou knowest how this people has my love.

Enough that I have borne its shame and sin
and seen salvation—now I need not live.

Stay, hold my nerveless hands, let fall my staff;
thou faithful God, prepare me for my grave.

On April 3, 1968, Martin Luther King spoke at a protest rally in Memphis, Tennessee with these concluding remarks:

  • Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn't matter with me now, because I've been to the mountaintop.
  • And I don't mind.
  • Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!
