The battery is dead and/or the connections on the battery posts are corroded. Remove the battery post connections and clean the contact surfaces with sand paper and reassemble. Charge the battery while you have it disconnected and after cleaning and reassembly it should work fine. Batteries do get old so yours may need to be replaced if it will not charge.
Check to make sure you are getting voltage to the small post on the starter solenoid when the key is turned to the "crank" position. if so, check all of you connections on the battery cables. If your connections are all good, your cables are in good shape, and you still do not get the starter to crank, I would have the starter removed and tested.
Could be several possibilities...First, check the voltage on the battery...at engine off, it should read around 12.50 Volt DC....any lower and you won't get start....if battery voltage is ok then you will need to check the connections...bad connections on the battery can cause the no start condition(but allow the lights to come on as they don't draw as much power as a starter)...if you are in doubt as to the condition of the connections, then you can remove each battery cable and clean each cable and post and reconnect....if connections are ok then you may need to remove the starter and take it to the auto parts store and have it tested to see if it is defective
