Side by Side

Side by Side

 

They lie on the table side by side
the Holy Bible and the TV guide.
One is well worn and cherished with pride
no not the Bible, but the TV guide.
As the pages are turned, what shall they see?
Oh, what does it matter turn on the TV.
So they open the book in which they confide
no not the Bible the TV guide.

 

The Word of God is seldom read,
maybe a verse before they fall into bed.
Exhausted, sleepy and tired as can be.
not from reading the Bible, from watching T.V.

 

So then back to the table side by side,
lie the Holy Bible and the T.V. guide.
No time for prayer, no time for the Word,
the plan of salvation is seldom heard.
But forgiveness of sin, so full and free,
is found in the Bible, not on the T.V.
