Side BY Side

On the table side by side
The Holy Bible and the TV Guide
One is well worn, but cherished with pride
But that one is not the Bible, its the TV Guide
One is used daily to help folks decide
No! it is not the Bible, its the TV Guide
As the pages are turned what shall they see?
Oh it does not matter, just turn on the TV
Then confusion is started, for they all can't agree
On what they shall watch on that old TV
So they refer to the book in which they all confide
But it is not the Bible, it's the TV Guide
The Word of God is seldom read
Maybe a verse before they fall into bed
Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be
Not from reading the Bible, but from watching TV
Then back to the table side by side
The Holy Bible and the TV Guide
No time for prayer
No time for the Word
The plan of salvation is seldom heard
Forgiveness of sin so full and free
We find in the Bible, not on TV
