A focus not on human mortality, but on Christ, and in a context of consolation:
31. Since music can evoke strong feelings, the music for the celebration of the funeral rites should be chosen with great care. The music at funerals should support, console, and uplift the participants and should help to create in them a spirit of hope in Christ’s victory over death and in the Christian’s share in that victory.
I can’t but reiterate my doubt on a first-person hymn, however revered, as more suitable for a funeral than musical texts along the themes of Christ’s resurrection. That said, pastoral consolation is a sound principle.
