Funeral Music And Poems

This will fill up and be updated as we move along in 2023. Thank you for serving the Lord! Feel free to bookmark this for later. And may this section be a help in the future!

For keepsake until I am able to update this page, here are a few links to funeral songs that are beautiful examples of options available for purchase of music accompaniment, sheet music and/or for possible hire by your local pianist or music shop musicians. (These are broken down into categories to help sift through what you may be searching for, but can really be used for any funeral.)

***Also, these are not all necessarily doctrinal songs or “church” songs. However, we serve all walks of life and some people are looking for songs to play to family videos, private gatherings and personal meanings. It is not my desire, nor place to judge. But I wanted to clarify in case you have scrolled through quickly wondering. 😉

*** I also want to add, some of the videos were chosen over the other songs to help give ideas of funeral videos and rotating pictures to display during services or in private. Thank you for ministering during one of the hardest times in someone’s life. Mourning a loved is complex and life changing. May the Lord give you strength, peace and extra love to pour out on the families you are ministering. (Possibly while you are grieving as well.)
