The Holy Bible and the TV Guide
There on the table, lying side by side • Is the Holy Bible and the TV Guide.
One is well worn and cherished with pride • But that one’s not the Bible, it's the TV Guide.
And turning the pages, what shall they see? • It doesn't matter, just turn on the TV.
Confusion begins, for they can't all agree • What they shall watch on that big screen TV.
So they refer to the Book, which they all confide • But it's not the Bible, it's the TV Guide.
The true Word of God is seldomly read • But maybe a verse or two, just before bed.
Exhausted and sleepy, tired as can be - Not from reading the Bible, but from watching TV.
Then back to the table, lying side by side • The Holy Bible and the TV Guide.
No time for prayer, no time for the Word • The plan of salvation, is seldomly heard.
The forgiveness of sin, so full and so free • We find in God’s Bible, but not on TV.
