Manual for Use at Funerals: Consisting of Scripture Readings, Poems, and Prose Selections from Various Sources (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Manual for Use at Funerals: Consisting of Scripture Readings, Poems, and Prose Selections From Various Sources
This manual has been compiled in h0pe of assisting ministers and laymen in the task of preparing and conducting funeral services. Each occasion of bereavement is different from all others, and each funeral service requires special preparation. While, therefore, a general service, containing selections appropriate to the majority of occasions, has been arranged, it is offered with the idea of being shortened 'and supplemented according to the judgment of the min ister and the special circumstances that may arise. For this purpose we have brought together all passages of scripture which seemed appropriate, and have grouped them under various headings, so that anyone, with comparatively little trouble, can form the special service he needs.
While the manual is compiled with reference to its use at funerals, it is hoped that the selections here made, of prose and poetry, may be of service, also, as devotional readings, in the sick room or elsewhere.
