“Into The Mystic” – performed by Van Morrison

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won
As we sailed into the mystic

Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly
Into the mystic 

And when that fog horn blows
I will be coming home, mmm mmm
And when the fog horn blows
I want to hear it
I don’t have to fear it

I wanna rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
Then magnificently we will float
Into the mystic

When that fog horn blows
You know I will be coming home
And when that fog horn whistle blows
I gotta hear it
I don’t have to fear it

And I wanna rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will float
Into the mystic
Come on girl

Will they stop now

If you are searching for songs that you can play during the service inside the funeral homes, chapel, church or wherever the remains of your deceased loved one is being laid, you can listen to the song “Into The Mystic” which was written and performed by Van Morrison.

The lyrics are sort of enchanting. This is because the song talks about the journey of a person through life and experiencing different emotions like love, faith, fear and acceptance. This will be a good song for any deceased person from a child to an adult because everybody’s lives are journeys. This journey may take people to different places but in the end, they always go back home to where their hearts are.

In the lyrics, “and when that foghorn blows, I will be coming home”, the foghorn symbolizes the calling of death and realizing that it is a way to bring your soul back to origins, to religion, to family and to God.

When the writer said “when the foghorn whistle blows, I gotta hear it, I don’t have to fear it”, he has a good point indicating that people should not fear death. Instead, we should face this part of the journey with acceptance or else the soul will not be at peace. This song can be a source of inspiration for funeral quotes.
