This is a phenomenal playlist written by Theresa Emanuel of P31VIRTUES and is a continuation of our Hope for Grief: A Grief and Loss Collaboration. We only have one more post in this series and it’s my hope that it has brought you comfort.
The grief stages can take us on an emotional roller coaster. One way to smooth the highs and lows of loss is by using our God-given senses to nurture our soul and physical body. The sensory stimulation of music can have a calming effect on our mental and physical state.

What is the Best Christian Playlist that will bring comfort as you grieve the loss of loved ones?
This playlist has three sections. It takes the listener from despair to comfort, then from comfort to reassurance and hope, then to peace. The playlist is here, but keep reading to learn more about the songs on the playlist.
Listen to Loss songs that will help bring you comfort
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3
Who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 2 Corinthians 1:4
Father God is our comforter. The first part of the playlist helps the listener take the raw emotion and pain of loss to Father God and allow Him to provide comfort.
Sometimes we’re in a space where we cannot utter a word, and all we have are tears. The playlist begins with songs to reach us in that space.
Come Ye Disconsolate
Come Ye Disconsolate is a bit of a soulful lullaby, perfect for rocking and weeping. Yet the words are full of the encouraging truth that heaven can cure the pain felt on earth. As children of God, we have the privilege to go to His throne at any time.
I love the Lord
The song I Love the Lord reminds us that God loves us and hears us. He is on the throne, waiting for us to come to Him.
What a Friend We Have In Jesus
What a Friend We Have In Jesus is meaningful because Jesus will not grow weary of our tears. He can patiently bear our emotions as we go back and forth in the grief stages. Jesus will be there, even if friends slowly drift back to their everyday life.
Comforter Comfort Comfort
Once we take our emotions to the throne, we will receive the comfort and reassurance that He sees us and cares for us. The song Comforter describes this extraordinary relationship and privilege.
His Eye Is On The Sparrow
His Eye Is On The Sparrow is another reminder that God sees us. We are precious to Him. Even though we may feel alone in our sorrow, we are not alone.
songs with a message of hope to help us find reassurance
In Romans 8:38-39, we read,
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers. Romans 8:38
Neither height nor depth nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39
Nothing can separate us from the love of God. NOTHING! Not even death! Not even anger over death. God can handle our emotions.
The middle section of the playlist encourages us to leave our pain, anger, and frustration at the throne. This part of the playlist reminds us to trust God with things we can’t understand on this side of the veil.
Even though we don’t understand everything, we know God is faithful. If pain has caused momentary doubt, we can find reassurance. Once reassured, we can find comfort in knowing that Christ defeated death when He died on the cross.
Whom Shall I Fear
Whom Shall I Fear assures us of the truth that even though bad things happen, it is not a reason to fear.
We may feel the void of a lost loved one and wonder who on earth will step in and fill the role that they had in our lives.
We may not know the answer today, but God is always with us, and He will provide.
Sometimes loss can cause a crisis of faith. Wynter’s Promise is a song that addresses the desire to question God amid despair.
Death Has Lost Its Sting
Death Has Lost Its Sting speaks to the glory of the resurrection. It details the fact that Christ defeated death. The passing of our loved ones in Christ is not the end of the story.
It Is Not Death To Die
It Is Not Death To Die is a reminder of the fact of promising news of the gospel. Those who accept Christ as their Savior have everlasting life instead of death.
We Are Not Ashamed
With the reassurance of the good news, we can proclaim that We Are Not Ashamed. This song allows the singer and hearer to declare the joy of the gospel and life after death.

There Will Be A Day
There Will Be A Day encourages us to carry on while we wait for the day when we can see Christ face to face. We may have sadness and tears now, but a day will come when there will be no need for crying.
Don’t Cry has a dual message. It is a song that can be heard at funerals as reassurance to continue to live even after a loved one has passed away. It is also reassurance that Christ will come again and we must carry on and be the hands of God here on earth.
Part 3 has songs to bring joy and peace
This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
The final third of the playlist is a reminder that God is still in control. That fact can help anchor us and give us something to celebrate even when there is sadness in our hearts.
Great Is Thy Faithfulness
Great Is Thy Faithfulness reminds us that Father God is always the same. We may be on an emotional roller coaster, but God is steady and faithful. He will provide for us during our bereavement just as He has provided for us in times of joy.
In times of loss, we frequently look for answers when there are no answers. Let Go is a reminder to leave everything in the hands of Father God. When we can get to the point of releasing everything and leaving it to God, we will find the peace we crave.
Grateful is a reminder to be thankful regardless of our circumstances. God’s unchanging love is reason enough to give thanks.
When We All Get to Heaven
When We All Get to Heaven lets us know that we can look forward to the time when we will join our loved ones. We can have joy and anticipation now while we wait for that day.
I remember Mama
I Remember Mama is a song of good memories that brings joy even though Mama has passed away. The song encourages us even when we’re not at that point yet.
It allows us to imagine feeling at peace. Finding peace and joy, longing for Heaven. If we’re not there yet, one day soon, we’ll reach a point where we can think of our loved ones and happily remember them.
It is well with my Soul
The ultimate place to be at the last step in the grief stages is to be able to say: It is well with my Soul. Then we can finally look forward to a new life without having grief hold us back. You will finally have the comfort, and peace you need.
