"Life's Highway"  
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, 'Jesus paid your bill a long, long time ago.'  
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,  
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,  
plans to give you hope and a future.
