There’s a gospel song entitled, “That’s When The Angels Rejoice” written by Larry Bryant:

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 heaven doesn’t strike up a band

For any old occasion at hand;

It’s got to be a special thing,

To make those angels smile and sing.

Now when the United States became a nation,

There was no angelic celebration.

But when one lost sinner comes back home,

They jump for joy around the throne!
