All Saint's Day
On this All Saints Day (observed), I remember my grandfather, Robert Empsall, who passed away in May at the age of 99 years, 11 months, and 2 weeks.
The best thing about All Saint's Day is that we get to sing my favorite hymn, "I Sing a Song of the Saints of God," as well as another wonderful classic that'll lift your spirits every time, "For All the Saints." This is the only version I could find of the former on YouTube, and alas, it has no words:
Also, James at The Three Legged Stool has posted beautiful video of the hymn "For All the Saints" from President Gerald Ford's funeral at the National Cathedral.
