Heaven’s Grocery Store

By the famous unknown author

I was walking down life’s highway a long time ago,

One day I saw a sign that read “Heavens Grocery Store.”

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

And when I came to myself, I was standing there 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 that grocery store,

And 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 wherever you go.

I got a box or two of wisdom and a bag or two of faith

I just couldn’t miss the Holy Ghost, for it was all over the place.

I stopped to get strength and courage, to help me run the race.

By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed 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 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 all plentiful, they were on the last shelf,

Song 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 smiled at him and said, “How much do I owe?”

He smiled again and said, “My child, Jesus payed your bill a long time ago.”
