Heaven's Grocery Store


I was walking down life's highway a long time ago.

Until one day I saw a sign that said "Heaven's Grocery Store".


As I got a little closer, the doors came open wide.

When I came to myself, I was standing there inside.

I saw a host of angels, they were standing everywhere.

One of them handed me a basket and said, "Child, shop with care".



Everything a Christian needed was in that grocery store,

And if all 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 everywhere you go.


I got a box or two of Wisdom, and bag 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.

By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed Grace.


I didn't forget Salvation, for Salvation, it was free.

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

Then I started toward the counter to pay my grocery bill,

For I thought I had all I needed to do the Master's will.


As I went up the aisle, I saw Prayer, and I had to fit that in,

For I knew when I stepped outside, I'd run right into sin.

Peace and Joy were plentiful=they were near the last shelf.

Songs and Praises were hanging there, so I just helped myself.


Then I asked the angel, "Now, how much do I owe?"

He just smiled and said to me, "Just take them and go".

Again, I turned and asked of him, "How much do I really owe?"

He smiled again and said,

"My friend, Jesus paid your bill a long time ago."
