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 and sleept 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.

If Jesus came to your house

If Jesus came to your house To spend some time with you,

If He came unexpected, I wonder what you'd do.

Oh, I know you'd give your nicest room To such an honored guest

And all the food you'd give to Him Would be the very best.

And you would keep assuring Him You're glad to have Him there--

That serving Him in your home Is joy beyond compare.

But when you saw Him coming, Would you meet Him at the door

With arms outstretched in welcome To your heavenly visitor?

Or would you have to change your clothes Before you let Him in

Or hide some magazines And put the Bible where they'd been

Would you hide your worldly music and put some hymn books out?

Could you let Jesus walk right in, or would you rush about?

And I wonder - if the Saviour spent a day or two with you,,p> Would you go right on doing, the things you always do?

Would you go right on saying, the things you always say?

Or would life for you continue as it does from day to day?

Would you take Jesus with you everywhere you go?

Or would you maybe change your plans for just a day or so?

Would you be glad to have Him meet your closest friends?

Or would you hope they stay away, until His visit ends?

Would you be glad to have Him stay forever on and on?

Or would you sigh with great relief when He at last was gone?

It might be interesting to know, the things that you would do,

If Jesus came in person, to spend some time with you,
