A funeral is a sad event, during which nothing much can be said; no words can make up for the loss. Funeral songs, hymns, and poems are the only way in which the bereaved family can be comforted. The deceased is always given a last goodbye in a very touching manner. Here, we give you a list of popular songs, often played at Christian funerals across the world.
Songs for Funerals
When it comes to such songs, one cannot ignore the variety in their music and compositions. Some of these were written as traditional hymns, ages ago, by well-known poets. You will even find some written by modern singers and songwriters, like Elton John. The songs, both old and new, are popular because of their soul-touching lyrics and beautiful music.
