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 1st lit up the town
you know the angels did not dance around.
And when the man stepped on the moon – they didn’t sing a victory tune.
Now heaven doesn’t strike up the band, for any old occasion at hand
It’s got to be a special plan to make those angels sing.
Now when the model T 1st hit the street,
it didn’t bring all heaven to its feet.
And when the 1st computer was born, they didn’t blow old Gabriel’s horn
Now when the United States became a nation,
there was no angelic celebration
But when one lost sinner comes back home,
they dance for joy around the throne.
