Bury the drums in the sand.
Plant the guitar in the garden.
Drown the piano in the tank.
Toss the tambourine in the trash can.
Turn off the radio and the television.
Oh sing unto the Lord
a new song from your heart.
Sing with love and joy.
Retire those distracting instruments.
Forget those blasphemous pop songs
disguised as church music.
The world has been sleeping
comfortably in the church.
