I was walking down life’s highway a long time ago. One day I saw a sign that read `Heaven Grocery Store’.
As I got a little closer, the door came wide open, 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 if you couldn’t carry them, 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 of WISDOM, a bag or two of FAITH. I couldn’t miss the Holy Ghost, for He was all over the place. I stopped to get some STRENGTH and COURAGE to help me win the race And though my basket was getting full, I remembered to get 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 the grocery bill, for I thought I had everything to do my Master’s will.
As I went up the aisle, I saw PRAYER and I just had to put that in, For I knew when I stepped outside, I would run into SIN. PEACE and JOY were 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 really owe?”
The Angel smiled again and said, “My child, Jesus paid your bill a long time ago.”
