When Moms were at home
Dads were at work

Brothers went into the army
And sisters got married BEFORE having children!

Crime did not pay Hard
work did And people knew the difference
Moms could cook
Dads would work
Children would behave
Husbands were loving
Wives were supportive
And children were polite
Women wore the jewelry
And Men wore the pants
Women looked like ladies
Men looked like gentlemen
And children looked decent
People loved the truth
And hated a lie
They came to church to get IN
Not to get OUT!
Hymns sounded Godly
Sermons sounded helpful
Rejoicing sounded normal
And crying sounded sincere
Cursing was wicked
Drinking was evil
And divorce was unthinkable 
The flag was honored
America was beautiful
And God was welcome!
We read the Bible in public
Prayed in school
And preached from house to house
To be called an American was worth dying for To be called a Christian
was worth living for 
To be called a traitor was a shame!
Sex was a personal word Homosexual was an unheard of word
And abortion was an illegal word  Off color jokes were only told among dirty men folk 
Preachers preached because they had a message And Christians rejoiced
because they had the VICTORY! Preachers preached from the Bible Singers sang from the heart And sinners turned to the Lord to be SAVED! A new birth meant a new life Salvation meant a changed life Following Christ led to eternal life Being a preacher meant you proclaimed the word of God Being a deacon meant you would serve the Lord Being a Christian
meant you would live for Jesus And being a sinner meant someone was
praying for you!
Laws were based on the Bible
Homes read the Bible And churches taught the Bible
Preachers were more interested in new converts Than new clothes and new cars God was worshiped Christ was exalted And the Holy Spirit was
respected Church was where you found Christians on the Lord's Day Rather than in the garden, on the creek bank, on the golf course, Or being entertained somewhere else.
