On the table, lying side by side,
Is the Holy Bible and the TV Guide;
One is well worn, but cherished with pride,
No, not the Bible, but the TV Guide.
One is used daily to help folks decide,
No, it isn’t the Bible, it’s the TV Guide
As pages are turned, what shall they see?
Oh, what does it matter, turn on the TV.
Then confusion reigns, they can’t all agree
On what they shall watch on the TV
So open the book in which they confide,
No, its not the Bible, it’s the TV Guide.
The Word of God is seldom read,
Maybe a verse ere they fall into bed
Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be,
Not from reading the Bible, but from watching TV.
So back on the table, side by side,
Is the Holy Bible and the TV Guide.
No time for prayer, no time for the Word,
The plan of salvation seldom is heard.
Growing in Christ, for you and for me,
Comes from reading the Bible, Not watching TV!
