A Dirge is a somber song often used to express mourning or grief. The term itself can refer to a funeral hymn or lament as well as a slow, mournful musical composition. The English word "dirge" came from the Latin words "Dirige, Domine, Deus meus, in conspectu tuo viam meam" which means "Direct my way in your sight, O Lord my God."
