Heaven's Grocery Store

  1. Heaven's 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

    I saw a host of
    They were
    standing everywhere

    One handed me a

    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

    Love was in that
    same row.

    Further down was

    you need that
    everywhere you go.

    I got a box or
    two of Wisdom

    And Charity of

    I would need some
    of that too.

    I couldn't miss
    Some Faith

    It was all over
    the place.

    And then some

    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

    I tried to get
    enough of that to do

    for you and me.

    Then I started to
    the counter

    to pay my grocery

    For I thought I
    had everything

    to do the Masters

    As I went up the

    I saw Prayer and
    put that in,

    For I knew when I
    stepped outside

    I would run into

    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
    I owe?"

    He smiled and

    "Just take them
    everywhere you go."

    Again I asked
    "Really now,

    How much do I

    "My child" he
    said, "God paid your bill

    a long long time
