Jealous of the Angels

This song was written by American country / pop singer-songwriter Jenn Bostic, in memory of her father who was killed in a car-crash when she was ten (ref).

While it expresses religious themes, it is not strictly speaking a hymn.   But it is very popular for funerals, especially ones where people have died tragically or unexpectedly, and is usually sung by a soloist.

It has been recorded by a number of artists, including Irish singer Donna Taggart who has has a recent UK hit with it.

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
I didn't know today would be our last ...

There will be another angel around the throne tonight ...

You always made my troubles feel so small ...

God must need another angel around the throne tonight ...

Singin' hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I'm just jealous of the angels
Around the throne
Tonight

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
I didn't know today would be our last
Or that I'd have to say goodbye to you so fast
I'm so numb, I can't feel anymore
Prayin' you'd just walk back through that door

And tell me that I was only dreamin'
You're not really gone as long as I believe

There will be another angel
Around the throne tonight
Your love lives on inside of me
And I will hold on tight
It's not my place to question
Only God knows why
I'm just jealous of the angels
Around the throne tonight

You always made my troubles feel so small
And you were always there to catch me when I'd fall
In a world where heroes come and go
Well God just took the only one I know
So I'll hold you as close as I can
Longing for the day, when I see your face again
But until then

God must need another angel
Around the throne tonight
Your love lives on inside of me
And I will hold on tight
It's not my place to question
Only God knows why
I'm just jealous of the angels
Around the throne tonight

Singin' hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I'm just jealous of the angels
Around the throne tonight.
