Music for Grandma’s Funeral – 11th January 2011
OPENING MUSIC (Karl Jenkins)
1. Laudamus Te from Gloria
Laudamus te, benedicimus te,
adoramus te, glorificamus te,
Gratias agimus tibi
propter magnam gloriam tuam.
We praise Thee, we bless Thee
We adore Thee, we glorify Thee
We give Thee thanks
for Thy great glory.
2 Closing chorus from The Armed Man (played while coffin enters)
God shall wipe away all tears
And there shall be no more death
Neither sorrow nor crying
Neither shall there be any more pain.
Praise the Lord!
CLOSING MUSIC (John Rutter)
1 A Gaelic Blessing
Deep peace of the running wave to you,
Deep peace of the flowing air to you,
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you,
Deep peace of the shining stars to you,
Deep peace of the gentle night to you,
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you,
Deep peace of Christ, the light of the world to you.
2 The Lord Bless You and Keep You
The Lord bless you and keep you,
The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you,
The Lord lift up the light of his countenance upon you,
And give you peace. Amen
