A service to honour the life a young person that has passed away would be incomplete without a funeral song. Funeral songs allow us to express how we feel about the person that passed away. It also allows us to express our deepest sadness and helps us to start our healing.
Whether you are planning a funeral or memorial service, we are confident that you will find a special funeral song in our list for a young death to play at the service.
How Do You Decide On a Funeral Song For Someone Who Dies Young?
There are many options for funeral songs suitable for a young death, so selecting the right song can seem overwhelming! Here are some simple tips to help you find the right song.
Make a List of Songs That Would be a Good Fit
With the type of the service in mind, do some research and make a list of potential songs that you prefer and that you think would be a good fit for the young person.
Listen To The Words
The words of a song are just as important as the melody. It’s helpful to have the lyrics to the songs open while you’re listening to the song. Remove any songs from your list that don’t convey the desired message.
Ask Family and Friends For Input
Once you have narrowed down your list of potential songs, play each song for close family members & friends who knew the deceased well. Ask which song they think best honours the young person. You can also ask if they have any song suggestions you may have missed.
