What Scripture Texts Can You Include on a Cremation Urn?

If your deceased relative was particularly religious and devout, it might be a good idea to have a Bible text engraved onto the urn following the Euclid, OH cremation. It’s not mandatory by any stretch of the imagination, but it could be a welcome add-on if you plan to showcase the run.

What follows is a look at several Bible texts that you can consider putting on a cremation urn as well as a brief explanation about message they convey.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. – Psalm 23:1

Virtually every Christian knows Psalm 23. It speaks of God’s protection even in the midst of great danger. So, if your deceased relative trusted in God and demonstrated this throughout their life, then this text could be a most fitting one on the cremation urn.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. – Psalm 91:1

This Bible text speaks of the protection that God promises His people even amidst calamities that overtake the world. It refers to God as a “refuge” and as a “fortress.” These are the sorts of terms that hammer home the idea of safety and protection, and so this text could be a fitting tribute if your loved one was in agreement with the sentiments of this Bible scripture.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. – Matthew 5:8

The Bible teaches that those who die in Christ will one day be resurrected and be granted eternal life. Was your deceased loved one the sort of person who never said anything bad thought about anyone? Did they have kinds words for anyone who needed them? Were they the type who gave people the benefit of the doubt? If so, this text would be appropriate. 

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. – Matthew 11:28

Because of the hope of the resurrection, many Christians refer to death as a sort of sleep from which a deceased believer will one day wake up from. In death, your loved one will rest from their labors and one day spend an eternity in heavenly bliss.

Whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. – John 5:24

This verse speaks of the promise of eternal live to those who hear and follow what God says. It’s a fitting tribute to a follower who goes to their rest.
