When my great grandma Luea died how great thou art was sung at her funeral.

Some have noted that “How Great Thou Art” does have a certain “schmaltz” factor about it, and its inclusion at funerals, although seemingly nearly obligatory, is not universally lauded. If known (or knowable), of course, the wishes of the decedent themselves should be respected as much as possible. If you would like this or any other particular song to be played at your own funeral, you should make sure that you’ve legally documented your final instructions.

Fabulous hymn – beautiful poetry and consistently wins Songs of Praise ‘favourite national hymn’.

Like so many great pieces, only good sung properly – as Threnody would undoubtedly do.

Preferably sung with 5,000 Welsh voices….
