Is This Hymn Appropriate at a Funeral?

Full Question

May the hymn “When the Saints Go Marching In” be sung at a Catholic funeral Mass?


The most well-known version of this hymn has pretty much been a secular song for almost a century.  As such, it should not be used at Mass (Musicam sacram 4, 43, 63).
