I was walking down life's highway
a long time ago.
I saw a sign that read
"Heaven's Grocery Store"
As I got a little closer,
the door came 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, stock with care."
Everything that a Christian needs
was in that store;
And if there was some that you could not carry,
you could come back the next day for more.
First I got some patience;
Love was in the same row.
Then I said to the angel,
"Now how much do I owe?"
He just smiled and said,
"Just take them wherever you go."
Again, I smiled at him and said,
"How much now, do I really owe?"
He smiled and said,
"My child, Jesus paid your bill a long time ago."
