I stood in the dark and I hid it
In the shadows it was easy to hide
Only God and I know I did it
To all others I plainly just lied
It is the absence of good that is fearful
And without God there cannot be good
No matter how remorseful and tearful
I fear judgment when I don’t do as I should
For as I do right I have no thing to dread
Living holy I stand proud and erect
I could do wrong but I do right instead
And the goodness of God does protect
Hell starts in my life right here
And heaven is just as close at hand
My Jesus has promised to be near
To lead me to that sweet promised land
If there is no good in the essence
Then there is no God at the source
If I am hiding my acts from His presence
I will reap pain and continued remorse
For every one that doeth evil hateth the
light, neither cometh to the light, lest his
deeds should be reproved.
But he that doeth truth cometh to the
light, that his deeds may be made
manifest, that they are wrought in God.
No God? No Good!
Know God? Know Good!
