Funeral Music

Order of Christian Funerals

Funeral Hymns, Psalms, and Spiritual Canticles

Below, you will find links to recordings of various hymns, etc. for funerals.

Many of the links will take you to professional recordings on YouTube or Spotify. (You don't need accounts to listen on either platform).

Some will take you to "amateur" recordings hosted on another site.

A CD will be available soon.

Entrance Hymns are below, followed by Psalms, Offertory, Communion, and Recessional.

If a link doesn't work, it probably means that a recording does not yet exist but will be coming soon!

Some of the recordings may have verses that don't exist in the printed version found in the planning booklet. They may also skip a verse or two, or there might be slight word differences. We will sing the version in the booklet.

Entrance Hymns

All Creatures of Our God and King
Come to Me, O Weary Traveler
Dwellers in the Holy City
For the Beauty of the Earth
God of Love, Whose Mercies
Grant Them Eternal Rest 
I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say
I Know that My Redeemer Lives, That I Shall Rise Again
If Christ Had Not Been Raised
Lord of All Hopefulness
Lord, Whose Love in Humble Service
The Lord is My Hope

Offertory Hymns

Be Not Afraid
In Every Age
In the Arms of the Shepherd
Jesus, Remember Me
Life is Changed, Not Ended
Like a Shepherd

O God, You Search Me
On Eagle’s Wings
Saints and Beloved of God
There is a Longing
You Are Near

Center of My Life 
Eat This Bread 
Eye Has Not Seen 
Gift of Finest Wheat 
I Am the Bread of Life
In the Breaking of the Bread 
One Bread, One Body 
Shepherd Me, O God 
Take and Eat
Taste and See 
Unless a Grain of Wheat
We Remember

Alleluia, Sing to Jesus
For All the Saints
Go in Peace
Holy God, We Praise Thy Name
I Know that My Redeemer Lives
Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee
May the Road Rise to Meet You
O God, Beyond All Praising
Sing With All the Saints in Glory
The Strife is O’er
There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy
Ye Watchers and Ye Holy Ones
