Heavens Grocery Store

I was walking down life's highway...

a long time ago.

One day I saw a sign that read,

Heavens Grocery Store.

I got a little closer, the door opened wide.

I took a few more steps...

and saw myself inside.

I saw a host of angels...

they were standing everywhere.

One handed me a basket and said...

My child shop with care.

Everything a Christian needs...

is in this grocery store.

All that you couldn't carry,

 you could come back for more.

First I got some patience, love was in the same row.

Further down was understanding,

you need that wherever you go.

I got a box or two of faith, I just couldn't miss...

 the Holy Ghost, for He was all over the place.

I stopped to get some strength and courage...

to help me run the race.

But then my basket was full, and I remembered...

I still needed some grace.

I didn’t forget salvation, for that was free...

So I tried to get enough to save both you and me.

I went up to the counter...

to pay my grocery bill.

I thought 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 hanging near...

so I just starting heaping it in.

Then I said to the angel,

"How much do I owe?"

He just smiled and said...

 take them everywhere you go!

Again I smiled and said...

 how much do I really owe?

He smiled back and said, my child,

Jesus paid your bill a long time ago.
