Heaven’s Grocery Store

As I was walking down life’s highway many years ago,

I came upon a Sign that read Heaven’s 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 Master’s 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.”
