HEAVENS GROCERY STORE
I was walking down life's highway a long time ago.
One day I saw a sign that read; "Heaven's Grocery Store."
As I got a little closer, the door came open wide
And when I came to myself, I was standing inside.
I saw a host of angels, they were standing everywhere,
One handed me a basket and said: "My child, stop with care."
Everything a Man needed was in that grocery store,
And all you couldn't carry, you could come back the next day for more.
First I got some Patience, Love was in the same row,
Further down was Understanding, you need that everywhere you go.
I got a box or two of Wisdom, a bag or two of Faith,
And the Milk of Human Kindness was just all over the place.
I stopped t get Strength and Courage to help me run this race.
By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed some Grace.
I didn't forget Salvation, for Salvation that was free.
So I tried to get enough of that to save both you and me.
Then I started up to the counter to pay my grocery bill
For I thought that I had everything to do my Master's will.
As I went up the aisle, I saw Prayer and I just had to put it in,
For I knew when I stepped outside, I would run right into Sin.
Peace and Joy were plentiful, they were on the last shelf.
Songs and Praises were hanging near, so I just helped myself.
Then I said to the Angel; "Now how much do I owe?"
He just smiled and said, "Just take them everywhere you go".
Again, I smiled at him and said; "How much really do I owe?"
He smiled again and said; "My child, Jesus paid your bill a long time ago."
