A service to honour the life and legacy of a loved one that has passed away would be incomplete without a funeral song. Funeral songs are able to express how we feel about our loved one that passed away. They can also express our deepest sorrow and help us to begin healing. Some funeral songs can also help us joyfully celebrate an extraordinary life.
Whether you are planning a funeral, a memorial service, or a celebration of life ceremony, we are confident that you will find a religious funeral song in our list to play at the service.
Let us help you decide on a religious funeral song
There are endless options for religious funeral songs out there so making a decision can seem overwhelming!
If your loved one’s service is a traditional funeral service, you might want to stick with more traditional song choices (for example, ‘Amazing Grace’ or ‘The Prayer’). If the service is a celebration of life or memorial service, it might be more appropriate to choose music that is more reflective of your loved one (such as your loved one’s favourite song or a song whose lyrics remind you of them, their faith, the church or how they lived their life).
Make a List of Religious Songs That Would be a Good Fit
Consider the type of the service, do some homework and make a list of possible religious songs that you think would be a good fit for your loved one.
Listen To The Words
Words of a song are just as important as the melody. It’s handy to have the lyrics to the songs while you’re listening to them. Delete any religious songs from your list that don’t meet the desired message.
Ask Family and Friends For Input
When you have reduced down your list of religious songs, play each song for close family members & friends who knew your loved one well. Ask them which religious song they think best represents the person. You can also ask if they have any other religious song suggestions not listed.
