308. When converts first begin to sing

When converts first begin to sing,
Wonder, wonder, wonder,
Their happy souls are on the wing,
Glory, hallelujah.
Their theme is all redeeming love—
Glory, hallelujah!
Fain would they be with Christ above,
Sing glory, hallelujah!

They wonder why old saints don't sing,
Wonder, wonder, wonder;
And make God's earthly temples ring,
Glory, hallelujah!
They view themselves upon the shore—
Glory, hallelujah!
And think the battle all is o'er,
Sing, glory, hallelujah!

The Bible now appears so plain,
Wonder, wonder wonder,
They wonder they should read in vain,
Glory, hallelujah!
The air is all perfumed with love,
Glory hallelujah!
And earth appears like heaven above.
Sing, glory, hallelujah!
