This is a question Putting the Fun in Funeral

Some deaths come suddenly or too soon and can really hit hard, others seem to be a blessed relief. Similarly, some funerals can be deeply upsetting and sad, others can make you want to hug the world.

Mmm, don't want to bring you down or anything, but tell us your funeral stories...

Thwate, I remember that Hymn
'If I were a wiggly worm,Id thank you Lord, that I could squirm...'

We used to sing that in school assemblies at primary school. It was one of the favorites as it had hand actions which I still remember to this day. Funily enough, the verse you mentioned we never sang, just the chorus and 2 verses

'If I were a butterfly (link thumbs, make butterfly)
I'd thank you lord, for giving me wings.
And if I were a robin in a tree (make birds beak with hand)
I'd thank you lord that I could sing.
And if I were a fish in the sea (hands together to make a fish)
Id wiggle my tail and I'd giggle with glee
But I just thank you, Father, for making me me'

(chorus-jesus I havent thought of this song in years)

'Lord you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile (hand on heart, draw smile on face)
You gave me jesus, you gave me your child (point to sky, cradle arms)
But I just thank you, Father, for making me me'

I'll stop there...
Did the people at the service do the hand movements?

My best mate charlie wants Funky town played at her funeral and everyone must do the head slide dance, including those carrying her coffin.
