    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, "Christ paid your bill a long long time ago."
