HEAVENS GROCERY STORE

As I was walking down life's highway
many years ago
I came upon a sign that read
Heavens Grocery Store.

When I got a little closer
the doors swung 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 human needed
was in that grocery store
And what you could not carry
you could come back for more

First I got some  Patience.
Love was in that same  row.
Further down was  Understanding,
you need that  everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of Wisdom
and Faith a bag or two.
And Charity of course
I  would need some of that too.

I couldn't miss the Holy Ghost
It was all over the place.
And then some Strength
and Courage to help me run this race.

My basket was getting full
but I remembered I needed Grace,
And then I chose Salvation for
Salvation was for free
I tried to get enough of that to do
for you and me.

Then I started to the  counter
to pay my grocery bill,
For I thought I had everything
to do the Masters will.

As I went  up the aisle
I saw Prayer and put  that in,
For I knew when I stepped  outside
I would run into sin.

Peace and Joy were plentiful,
the last things on the shelf.
Song and Praise were hanging near
so I just helped myself.

Then I said to the angel
"Now how much do I owe?"
He smiled and said
"Just take them everywhere you go."

Again I  asked "Really now,
How much do I  owe?"
"My child" he said, "God paid  your bill
a long long time ago."
