One More Angel in Heaven Lyrics

1993 Broadway revival
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat the Musical - One More Angel in Heaven Lyrics


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

REUBEN, REUBEN'S WIFE & MALE ENSEMBLE:
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 a our table
There's one more tear in my eye

BROTHERS:
But Joseph the things that you stood for

REUBEN:
Like peace and love 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 a 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

NAPHTALI:
Let no tear be shed

BROTHERS:
If he had not laid down his life
We all would now be dead
