Christian Funeral Poems
Poems for a Funeral Service - Eulogy Poems


Blue Triteleia against Gray Clouds

These Christian funeral poems may be appropriate for a funeral service or eulogy.


They remind us that heaven is our true home, which gives hope to those making efforts on the path of salvation. They give us hope that we might again be reunited with our loved one in heaven.


This will happen only by the grace of God, which was purchased by the sufferings and death of his beloved son Jesus Christ on the cross on Calvary on Good Friday


Better than anyone else, He knows the deep sadness, hurt, pain and grief when we suffer the loss of a loved one. Jesus himself, who is both God and man, suffered and died a cruel death, to take away the sting and victory of death.



We thank the Lord that He came to show the way to our true destiny in heaven. He took all our burdens, shame and suffering, so that once in heaven, they will be no more.

223. Prayer for a Loved One

     by Paul Berchtold, March, 2012

With sad farewell, we say goodbye,
Your journey on earth is now done.
We hope you're home in the best place.
Welcomed in heaven, dearest one.

Only heaven is our true home.
Heaven is where we all belong.
Life on earth is dying exile.
Heaven is joyous life in song.

Music from the countless millions,
Each song understood perfectly.
Around each the special presence,
Of dearest friends and family.

We miss you much, we now await,
The coming soon reunion,
Where hearts forever will be filled,
In love's divine communion.

God fill you with many blessings.
We praise His plan, for He knows best.
We give thanks for His work in you.
May God grant you eternal rest.


224. O Blessed Hope

     by Paul Berchtold, March, 2012

O blessed hope! Thank you Jesus!
You won victory on the cross,
Over sin, death, and all diseases,
So we don't have to suffer loss.

It's not forever we'll have to wait,
We'll see again our loving friend.
We'll meet again at heaven's gate,
In joy and bliss that has no end.

We pray our friend is gathered sure,
In God's family as His child.
We are the ones left insecure,
In this world where we are exiled.

It's not forever we'll have to wait,
We'll see again our loving friend.
We'll meet again at heaven's gate,
In joy and bliss that has no end.

We thank you God, by grace you bring,
Each one home when you know best.
We pray we all will one day sing,
Your praises in eternal rest.

It's not forever we'll have to wait,
We'll see again our loving friend.
We'll meet again at heaven's gate,
In joy and bliss that has no end.


225. On to Heaven

     by Paul Berchtold, March, 2012

On to heaven, on to heaven,
Jesus has the victory won.
On to heaven, on to heaven,
We hope our friend has quickly gone.

Into heaven, into heaven,
Gone with the saints and angels dear,
Into heaven, into heaven,
Where joyous songs bring love and cheer.

Up to heaven, up to heaven,
We send our thoughts and prayers on high.
Up to heaven, up to heaven,
Go our every tear and sigh.

Down from heaven, down from heaven,
Now comes the grace to cope with loss,
Down from heaven, down from heaven,
Every grace comes from the cross.

Where is heaven, where is heaven?
With tears are lives are torn apart.
Where is heaven, where is heaven?
Heaven is Jesus in our heart.

Blessed Heaven, blessed heaven,
We need your comfort from above,
Blessed heaven, blessed heaven,
Thank you for your peace and love.

A Funeral is a Time of Special Graces

Solomon said that "It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to the house of feasting; for in this we are reminded of the end of all. The living reflect on what is to come." (Ecclesiastes 7:2)

Years ago, a woman in Poland (who died before World War II) was told by Jesus that hardly anyone even prays at funerals.

For many people, a funeral may be one of the few times - maybe the only time - they will hear the Good News of what Jesus did for each and every one of us sinners to save us from sin and hell. How He opened the gates of heaven for us, but we each must do our part and live a life of gratitude and thanksgiving for so great a gift. And be faithful to the end, a grace for which we must daily pray.

At a funeral, we ought to pray not only for ourselves, but for others to receive the special graces, inspirations, and even special warnings to prepare ourselves for eternity.


A Funeral is a Golden Opportunity

A funeral service is a teachable moment - a truly golden opportunity - to remind ourselves and others of the purpose of our lives here on earth.

It is one of the best times to remind us of the 4 last ends, death, judgment, heaven, and hell - that we all will die - we all will be judged. And that we will then arrive at the most final destiny for each one of us - either united in heaven - or separated and lost in hell.

Heaven is, and should be, and hopefully will be for us, our most important and final destiny, for which we must live and work and pray.

How few do so!

Here are 3 more poems about heaven that can be a good reminder for us especially at the time of death, funeral, and burial service.



Funerals Remind Us of the Meaning and Purpose of Life

Why are we here on earth?

For each and every one of us, the purpose of this life is to do our part with God's help to get to heaven.

God can't do it all for us.

And we can't do it all by ourselves.

We need the grace and salvation of Jesus Christ, which He earned for us on the cross. We must accept it, and then live it.

Then we truly can live in the blessed hope of again meeting our loved ones in a forever happy reunion.

Thank your stars!
