On Pentecost they gathered within a hollow square

I did a Sacred Harp arrangement of Jane Parker Huber's 1981 Pentecost hymn to RELIGION IS A FORTUNE. The text goes

1 On Pentecost they gathered
Quite early in the day,
Shout glory, halle hallelujah.
A band of Christ's disciples,
To worship, sing, and pray.
Shout glory, halle hallelujah.
When we all get to heaven,
We will shout aloud and sing,
Shout glory, halle hallelujah.
And tongues of fire aglowing
Inspired each person there.
Shout glory, halle hallelujah.

2 The people all around them
Were startled and amazed
To understand their language,
As Christ the Lord they praised.
Shout glory, halle hallelujah.
When we all get to heaven,
We will shout aloud and sing,
Shout glory, halle hallelujah.
And tongues of fire aglowing
Inspired each person there.
Shout glory, halle hallelujah.
