"Until they came for me."

I'm trying to remember the name of a poem about the nazis.
It was about the hangman's noose and that I didnt speak up when they came to take my neighbor until the day they came for me and then there was no one left to speak for me.
Does anyone remember this? I cant track it down.

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.

Pastor Martin Niemöller
