Getting past the unusual syntax is the first task in reading much of Dickinson. I this poem she states a simple truth that it is not that we acted according to our powers of volition, but whether we acted in a "righteous" manner, is how our Lord (lord) will judge how our actions met the test of the divine that we are capable of within ourselves.
