One More Angel In Heaven


Father we've something to tell you
A story of our time
The 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 our eye
Joseph the things that you stood for
Like truth and life never die

When I think of his last great battle
A lump comes to my throat
It takes a man who knows not fear
To wrestle, with... a goat!
Carve his name with pride and courage
Let no tear be shed
If he had not laid down his life
We all would now be dead

Joseph died as he wished to
He answered duty's call
He single-handed fought the beast
That would have slain us all
His bloodstained coat's a tribute to
His final sacrifice
His body may not be with us
But his soul's in paradise
