Go in Peace


by Sarah Hart and Dwight Liles

Death is a fact of life. It comes “like a thief in the night,” touching all people of all ages, often with little or no warning. We are left with nothing to hold onto except family, friends, and our faith.

The funeral liturgy allows us to grieve, to remember our loved one, and to celebrate our hope of sharing in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Words can be inadequate, so we turn to song to express the yearnings of our hearts.

Repertoire for the funeral liturgy tends to reflect the music of the older generation: “I Am the Bread of Life;” “Amazing Grace;” “How Great Thou Art;” “In Paradisum.” But what about songs for those who are called home to God at an earlier age? Sarah Hart and Dwight Liles have gifted the Church with “Go in Peace.” Although their lyrics express a timeless faith in God’s mercy, the melody and rhythms of this song come from today’s generation.

In addition to funeral liturgy, “Go in Peace” is a perfect song for All Souls Day and, for those parishes who celebrate a month-long remembrance of the dead during November. May this song bring consolation and hope to those who grieve and those who hope.
