Right in Their Own Sight

Though they were right in their own sight, 

a higher laws applies.

Created able to make plans, 

we’ve all got fertile minds.


Our work, when aimed at noble goals, 

is not just for ourselves.

The Lord made us and everything 

for reasons we can’t delve. 


Through loyalty and faithfulness 

our sinning is atoned.

Hold God in awe, obey the law. 

Leave nothing to bemoan.
