Heaven’s Grocery Store
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 needed was in the grocery store,
And all you couldn’t carry, you come back next day 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, a bag or two of Faith.
I couldn’t miss the Holy Ghost for it 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 some Grace.
I didn’t forget Salvation for Salvation is free,
So I tried to get enough of that 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 know when 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 smiled and said ‘just take them everywhere you go.’
Again I said ‘How much do I really owe?’
He smiles again and said…
‘My Child, Jesus paid your Bill a long, long time ago!’
