How Do I Stand WithGod?

I guess I pass inspection
When I go by, the neighbors nod
But still (upon reflection)
How do I stand with God?

I live in a noble country,
Far from the tyrant's rod,
But that doesn't answer the question:
Just how do I stand with God?

I go to church on Sunday,
Say, why do I feel so odd?
Is it because man's righteousness
Doesn't make him right with God?

If I must give it all away
Go hungry walk unshod
I'll not let pass another day,
Till I get right with God!
