Heaven's Grocery Store
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.
a host of Angels, they were standing everywhere.
handed me a blanket and said, "My Child shop with care".
Everything a Christian needs is in that grocery store,
and all you can't carry, come back the next day for more.
First, I got some Patience, Love was in
the same row.
Further down was Understanding, needed
everywhere you go.
I got a box or two of Wisdom, a bag or
two of Faith,
I just couldn't miss the Holy Ghost, it was
all over the place.
I stopped to get some Strength and
Courage to help me run this race,
but then my blanket was
getting full, and I remembered I needed Grace.
didn't forget Salvation, which like the others was free,
so I tried to get enough of that to save both you and me.
Then I started to the counter to pay my grocery bill,
for I thought I had everything to do my master's will.
went up the aisle, I saw Prayer and had to put it in,
I knew when I stepped outside, I would run right into sin.
Peace and Joy were plentiful, they were on the last shelf.
Song and Praises were hanging near, so I just helped
I said to the Angel, "How much do I owe"?
The Angel smiled
and said, "Just take them everywhere you go."
politely asked "How much do I really owe?"
smiled again and said, "My Child, Jesus Paid Your Bill
Long Time Ago."
