A Funeral Playlist

🤔My Thoughts… 

Last Saturday Sarah & i were buying Christmas cards at our local Christian book store when a man asked the worker “Do you have a CD which has funeral songs on? I conduct a lot of funerals and i’ve tried all the other shops in town, then they told me to try the Christian shop:. He said it wouldn’t be for a Christian though….

My mind was racing by this point and i said to Sarah “Now that’s a question you don’t hear very often….if at all”. 

On leaving the shop i said to Sarah “That could be a difficult playlist to make as for us, it’s a Glorious celebration as death has no sting(1 Corinthians 15:55). And to know we will be absent from body and present with the Lord(2 Corinthians 5:8)……Or for those without God and no Hope(Ephesians 2:12)”it will be the most terrible time of their life”,

The shop didn’t have a CD funeral album…

I said to Sarah “I only have 1 Hymn so far that i would like to play at my funeral and that’s ‘When i survey the Wondrous Cross(Isaac Watts version)’, i need to find a couple more…i will have to make a funeral playlist”. 

Can you help me?? I’d love to hear about your fave  Hymn/song suggestions. 😀

  1. As a Christian, I see it as a party celebrating life and a homecoming. One is at home with Daddy God and the Lord Jesus. The music would include the happiest worship music, honoring God and Jesus.Perhaps the song Christ Arose by Robert Lowry. Celebrate! Triumph in the love of God, redemption and rejoicing in the goodness of God!

    • Amen! How can we not praise Him for what He has done for us! 😀

      What a Glorious day it will be! 😀

      Thanks for leaving such a Hope filled comment. God bless you.

  2. How about “When Morning GIlds the Sky”” And though it’s a little long – “The Hallelujah Chorus”. We’ve lost the idea that death is only a door into glory – at least for the Christian. That those who have died in Christ are not “gone,” but have simply left the room for a minute, and we shall soon join them.

  3. Blessed Assurance — my favorite gospel song.

  4. We sang this at my Dad’s funeral…he loved it. Mansion Over The Hilltop
    I’ve got a mansion just over the hilltop,
    In that bright land where we’ll never grow old;
    And someday yonder we will never more wander,
    But walk the streets that are purest gold.

    • Awww such Glorious words. Thank you so much for sharing this song, i have never heard of it before and i’m going to check it out! 😀

      Thanks so much for taking time to read, like and comment, i’m so blessed to meet you here. 😀

  5. How Great Thou Art is a song that I have heard at funerals. It always touches my heart.

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
