ELW-CrossLeavesEvangelical Lutheran Worship Braille Edition: Service Music and Hymns presents the words of Evangelical Lutheran Worship #151-893 (Service Music and Hymns) on Braille-embossed pages.

Over 1,600 pages of Braille are produced on sturdy paper stock in a standard 11 x 11.5 page size. Pages are loose-leaf, three-hole punched, and enclosed in eight red hardcover binders. Each binder includes a cover sheet that is both printed and embossed, indicating the page range in that binder. The loose-leaf format helps the user select and remove pages to be used in worship for a given occasion.

The complete texts for all 743 service music items and hymns from the Pew Edition are included. The transcription uses Unified English Braille (UEB), implemented as the new standard for use beginning Jan. 1, 2016, by the Braille Authority of North America. This new standard is designed to be easily readable by those familiar with the previous standard, while being more accessible to new Braille users.

All contents have been prepared and thoroughly reviewed by experienced Braille users and in cooperation with the Disability Ministry section of the ELCA’s Domestic Mission unit. This edition will be shipped direct from the manufacturer upon completion. To order your copy today, visit evangelicallutheranworship.org or call Augsburg Fortress at 800-328-4648.
