Abingdon Press Hymns for Signing: American Sign Language

Hymns for Signing was developed to provide persons with hearing impairments access to hymns as they are sung. Many words and concepts in hymns do not not exist in American Sign Language (ASL); singers must translate hymns used in worship into ASL prior to the service. This text-only edition is primarily for signers to use in worship and other church settings. It will also be helpful to those who have impaired hearing for use with their families or in other areas. Contains more than 600 hymns translated into American Sign Language; features an easy-to-use, easy-to-read format; contains an excellent collection of traditional and gospel hymns; allows persons with hearing impairments to participate in worship; serves an important ministry function. 480 pages spiral bound. From Abingdon Press.

If you are a beginner in Sign Language, this may not be the book you want. A great resource for those who already have a good signing vocabulary, it gives the best way for a deaf audience to understand the Hymns we all know and love. But the book will not give you all the words in diagrams individually so you will need to have a basic understanding of ASL. It will, however, give you instruction for some little known words that are not known by the beginner. If you are already in deaf ministry, this would be a great addition to your ministry library.

When I found this one, I thought too good to be true. But let me tell you, well done to all the many people who help put this one together and Thank You for your time. This will help in the aid of translating those many difficult songs and hymns that we all love.
