​One More Angel In Heaven

This song is by Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice and appears on the Cast album Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (1968).

(Reuben)
Father, we've something to tell you; a story of our time
A tragic but inspiring tale of manhood in its prime
You know you had a dozen sons, well, now that's not quite true
But feel no sorrow, do not grieve, he would not want you to

There's one more angel in Heaven
There's one more star in the sky
Joseph, we'll never forget you
It's tough but we're gonna get by

There's one less place at our table
There's one more tear in my eye

(Brothers)
But Joseph, the things that you stood for

(Reuben)
Like truth and light never die

When I think of his last great battle a lump comes to my throat
It takes a man who knows no fear to wrestle with a goat
His blood-stained coat is tribute to his final sacrifice
His body may be past its peak, but his soul's in paradise

(Jacob)
There's one less place at our table
There's one more tear in my eye

(Brothers)
But Joseph, the things that you stood for

(Reuben)
Like truth and light never die

(Brothers)
Carve his name with pride and courage

(Napthali)
Let no tear be shed

(Brothers)
If he had not laid down his life, we all would now be dead
