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 came a little closer, the door came open wide,
And when I came to myself, I was standing inside.
I saw a host of angels that were standing everywhere,
One handed me a basket and said “My child, shop with care”
Everything a Christian 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 whereverÂ you go
I got a box or two Wisdom, a 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 this race;
By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I need 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 the counter to pay my grocery bill;
For I thought I had everything to my Master’s will.
As I went up the aisle, I saw Prayer, and I just had to put that in,
For I knew as 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 smile and said “Just take them whereverÂ you go.”
Again, I smiled at him and saidÂ ” How much do I really owe?”
He smiled again and said “My child, Jesus paid your bill a long time ago!
