Christian Poems and Poetry
Bible and the TV Guide
They lie on the table side by side
The Holy Bible and the T.V. Guide
One is well worn and cherished with pride,
Not the Bible, but the T.V. Guide
One is used daily to help folks decide
No, not the Bible, but the T.V.Guide
As the pages are turned, what shall they see
Oh, what does it matter, turn on the T.V.
So they open the book in which they confide
No, not the Bible, but the T.V. 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, 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 T.V.
