"Heaven's Grocery Store"

I was walking down life's highway 
a long, long time ago.  
One day I saw a sign that read, 
"HEAVEN'S GROCERY STORE."  
As I got a little closer, the door opened wide, 
and I found myself 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 if you couldn't carry it all, 
you could come back the 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 just 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 I needed some GRACE.

I didn't forget SALVATION, 
for SALVATION 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 the 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 last 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 again and said,  "MY CHILD, 
JESUS PAID YOUR BILL A LONG, LONG TIME AGO."
