For All the Saints

November 1, 2008

Here is a video of one of my favorite hymns, “For All the Saints.” It comes from a worship service at Mt. Olivet United Methodist Church in Arlington, Virginia. This video touches my heart because it’s a real church service, not a concert performance. I love the soaring melody that goes with this triumphant hymn. When I hear it sung (which, sad to say, isn’t very often), I want to stand and cheer. As the years roll on, and more and more of my friends are in heaven, this hymn means more and more to me. I am happy, so happy, on this All Saints Day that death will not have the final word. A better day is coming for the people of God.
