I was walking down life's highway, a long
time ago 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.
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 store".
First I got some PATIENCE, and
LOVE was in the same row, Further down was
UNDERSTANDING, you need that 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 the race, By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed
GRACE. I didn't forget SALVATION, for
SALVATION, that was free. So I tried to get enough to save both you and me.
Then I started up to the counter to pay my grocery bill For I thought I had everything to do my Master's will. As I went up the aisle, I saw
PRAYER and just had to put that in For I knew when I stepped outside, I would run right into sin.
PEACE and JOY were plentiful, they were on the last shelf.
SONGS and PRAYERS were hanging near, so I just helped myself.
Then I saw the angel and asked,
"How much do I owe?"
She just smiled and said,
"Just take them everywhere you go."
Again I smiled at her and said,
"How much, now do I really owe?"
She smiled and said,
Jesus paid your bill a long time ago."
