That's When the Angels Rejoice
by Gaither Vocal Band



AT THE COMPLETION OF THE GOLDEN GATE
NO THE ANGELS DID NOT CELEBRATE
AND WHEN THE WRIGHT BOYS FLEW THEIR BIRD
NO ANGELIC SHOUTS WERE HEARD
THERE'S ONLY ONE THING THAT WE'RE SURE ABOUT
THAT CAN MAKE THOSE ANGELS JUMP AND SHOUT
IT'S WHEN A SINNER MAKES THE LORD HIS CHOICE
THAT'S WHEN THE ANGELS REJOICE

NOW WHEN THE LIGHT BULB FIRST LIT UP THE TOWN
NO THE ANGELS DID NOT DANCE AROUND
AND WHEN THE MAN STEPPED ON THE MOON

THEY DIDN'T SING A VICTORY TUNE
THERE'S ONLY ONE THING THAT WE'RE SURE ABOUT
THAT CAN MAKE THOSE ANGELS JUMP AND SHOUT
IT'S WHEN A SINNER HEEDS THE SAVIOR'S VOICE
THAT'S WHEN THE ANGELS REJOICE

NOW HEAVEN DOESN'T STRIKE UP THE BAND
FOR ANY OLD OCCASION AT HAND
IT'S GOT TO BE A SPECIAL THING
TO MAKE THOSE ANGELS SING

NOW WHEN THE MODEL T FIRST HIT THE STREET
IT DIDN'T BRING ALL HEAVEN TO ITS FEET
AND WHEN THE FIRST COMPUTER WAS BORN
THEY DIDN'T BLOW OLD GABRIEL'S HORN
THERE'S ONLY ONE THING THAT WE'RE SURE ABOUT
THAT CAN MAKE THOSE ANGELS JUMP AND SHOUT
IT'S WHEN A SINNER MAKES THE LORD HIS CHOICE
THAT'S WHEN THE ANGELS REJOICE

NOW WHEN THE UNITED STATES BECAME A NATION
THERE WAS NO ANGELIC CELEBRATION
BUT ONE LOST SINNER COMES BACK HOME
THEY DANCE FOR JOY AROUND GOD'S THRONE
