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."
