If you're reading this, you may have experienced recently a death among family or friends. You wish to remember, to memorialize, the one who's gone. Perhaps you want to celebrate a life.

I am sorry for your loss, and wish to be of service here. My suggestions for funeral music include beloved hymns and classicals that give voice to comfort and hope. I like organ or piano, not sad, but quiet and brightly alive. Here are a few suggestions:

  • "The Love of God Is Greater Far," by F. M. Lehman

  • "In the Garden," by C. Austin Miles
  • "Beyond the Sunset," by Blanche Kerr Brock
  • "Precious Lord, Take My Hand," by Thomas A. Dorsey
  • "Whispering Hope," by Septimus Winner
  • "My Father Watches Over Me," by Chas. H. Gabriel
  • "Does Jesus Care When My Heart Is Pained," by J. Lincoln Hall
  • "No One Ever Cared for Me Like Jesus," by C. F. Weigle
