Recommended Reading Selections for Funeral Services
For those who have lost a loved one, funeral readings are a means to share your thoughts and feelings. Various readings are utilized during memorials, celebrations of life, or funerals.
Forms Of Readings
We at George Darte Funeral Home have observed that many have difficulty selecting the appropriate funeral readings because there are many options. A tribute to a loved one should always include a nod to the deceased. You can choose from a variety of readings, including:
1. Original Compositions For Funerals
Funerals benefit from creative compositions written by talented writers who can add a personalized feel to the service. Compositions that are recommended include tales, essays, and poetry.
2. Non-Religious Funeral Readings
Any passage from a play or book may be used as non-religious reading material. Non-religious funeral readings sometimes include "To Those Who Mourn from Daphne Du Maurie's "The Rebecca Notebook."
3. Religious Readings
Psalms are popular religious readings, and some that you consider using include:
The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.
He restoreth my soul;
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me;
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
4. Quotations For Funerals
Eulogies and funeral services sometimes include quotations. You can consist of quotes from any literary work, including novels, plays, and films.
