Funeral Poems for Husbands

This selection of funeral poems for husbands offers brief put powerful words to add to the funeral program.

One precious to our hearts has gone;

The voice we loved is stilled.

The place made vacant in our home;

Can never more be filled.

Our Father in his wisdom called;

The one his love had given;

And so on earth the body lies;

His soul is safe in Heaven.


We watched him suffer, day by day;

It caused us bitter grief;

To see him slowly pine away;

And could not give relief.

His weary hours and days of pain;

His troubled nights are past;

And in our aching hearts we know;

He has found sweet rest at last.

'Tis sweet to know we will meet again;

Where parting is no more;

And my dear husband I loved so well;

Has only gone before.

God knows how much I miss him;

He counts the tears I shed;

And whispers, "Hush, he only sleeps;

Your husband is not dead."

Some day, some time, my years shall see;

The face I loved so well.

Some day, some time, his hand I'll clasp;

And never say farewell.


The pearly gates were opened;

A gentle voice said "Come,"

And with farewells unspoken;

He gently entered home.


His smiling way and pleasant face;

Are a pleasure to recall;

He had a kindly word for each;

And died beloved by all.

Some day we hope to meet him;

Some day, we know not when;

To clasp his hand in the better land;

Never to part again.


All his toils and conflicts o'er;

Lo, what glories he's discovered;

Oh, what glories he's discovered;

In the Saviour whom he loved.


His weary hours and days of pain;

His troubled nights are past;

And in our aching hearts we know;

He has found sweet rest at last.


God is His wisdom has recalled;

The boon his love had given;

And though the body slumbers here;

The soul is safe in Heaven.


To have, to hold and then to part;

Is the greatest sorrow of our heart.


Keep him Jesus, in Thy keeping;

'Til I reach that shining shore;

Then, O Master, Let me have him;

And love him as I did before.


We watched him suffer, day by day;

It caused us bitter grief;

To see him slowly pine away;

And could not give relief.

His weary hours and days of pain;

His troubled nights are past;

And in our aching hearts we know;

He has found sweet rest at last.

Some day, some time, my eyes shall see;

The face I loved so well.

Some Day, sometime his hand I'll clasp;

And never say farewell.


His smiling way and pleasant face;

Are a pleasure to recall.

He had a kindly word for each;

And died beloved by all.

Some day we hope to meet him;

Some day we know not when;

To clasp his hand in the better land;

Never to part again.
