An aid for examining what's in and what's not -
is a work in progress,
not all text or music files are available, because of copyright.
all arrangements are by Rev. Richard Jordan
Click on the Hymn name gets you lyrics, click on the Tune name gets you its midi file

Please note, we are in no way involved in the actual production of the new hymnal,
or its contents and have no connection to the LCMS Commission on Worship,
if your concerns are in these areas, please don't write me,
but write to them (LCMS COW) or visit their website.

Remember, some tunes and texts will not be available because of copyright,
and that this is a preliminary list, and may change

One Further note:
We have used Lutheran Worship as the basis of our referencing.
Many hymns found in Lutheran Worship are also found in "The Lutheran Hymnal"
Perhaps when we are finished we can add the TLH hymn numbers as well.
Our decision was based on what would be most helpful to the most people,
and has nothing to do with which is a better hymnal;
because it is my hope that the next hymnal will be the better hymnal.
one we can all unite behind.
