and not one request for the "Greatest Hits".
I have to interject, because this doesn't happen often...
My hymn list for the past two funerals (Wed. and Thurs.) went like this as a result:
Introit hymn: For all the saints (Sine Nomine)
- Note: my boss often cites it in his funeral homily, so I program it often, but never during Lent, because of the "alleluias".
Psalm: My Shepherd is the Lord (Gelineau)
Alleluia: Twynham (F F F c c/d Bflat A Bflat c/Bflat A G F F)
Offertory: Jesus, Son of Mary (Adoro Te/Mode V)
- Note: We Celebrate and Journeysongs 2 have Jesus, Lord, Have Mercy, which is the last three verses, altered. I use Jesus, Son of Mary from Hymnal 1940/1982.
- Wednesday: Keep in Mind (Deiss)
- Thursday: The Lord is Kind (Peloquin/from Songs of Israel, Volume 2)
Final Commendation: Saints of God (Proulx)
Recessional: In Paradisum (Mode VII)
