The 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
And when I came to myself I was standing
I saw a host of angels.
They were standing everywhere
handed me a basket and said "My
child shop with care."
Everything a human needed was in that
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,
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
Then I said to the angel "Now how much do
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."
It originated in the Netherlands and has
the world 9 times.
