Songs for a funeral

Posted on May 10, 2011
Recently I played solo piano at a funeral. Although I did not know the deceased personally, I know the family. The service was a Christian one, with a country preacher officiating. I feel honored to play at times like these. It is a way to give of myself and to try and help. While researching some songs to play, I found very few that I recognized. So here is the start of a list I like to play. I expect to keep adding to this list over time.

Songs for a Christian Funeral Service

Amazing Grace
My Faith Has Found a Resting Place
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
My Jesus I Love Thee
It Is Well With My Soul
There is a Balm in Gilead
Precious Lord, Take My Hand
Just a Closer Walk With Thee
In the Garden
What A Friend We Have In Jesus
Sweet Bye and Bye
Abide With Me
His Eye Is On The Sparrow
