• Evangelical Lutheran
  Hymn-Book (1912)
• The Lutheran Hymnal (1941)
• Lutheran Worship (1982)
         Current Usage
                 1999 Survey

• 58% of congregations use LW
• 36% of congregations use TLH
• 7% of congregations use LBW

    Some congregations use more than one
      hymnal. A variety of supplemental
          resources are also used.

         Need for a Revision
       of our Synod’s Hymnals

• We have been a two-hymnal church for
  nearly a quarter of a century.
• Important to make use of the rich, new
  hymnody that is available.
• LSB is a ―careful blending‖ of our
  Synod’s hymnals, plus new materials.
    TLH + LW + new materials = LSB
           Development of LSB
• 1997—the Commission on Worship
  announces plans to prepare a new hymnal,
  giving itself a decade to complete the work
• 1998 synodical convention calls for
  development of a new hymnal
• 2001 resolution approves field testing plan
• 2004 convention grants final acceptance of
  Lutheran Service Book by a margin of 88%

           Exploring the Hymns
            Where do our hymns come from?

The hymns reflect the breadth of the Church,
drawn from every time and place:
• Our Lutheran heritage, which is well
• Other Christian traditions
• Around the world, including Africa (542,
  833), Asia (871), and Central & South
  America (479)
• 20th- and 21st-century hymn writers —
  a veritable ―hymn explosion‖
          Exploring the Hymns
            Criteria for Selection of Hymns

• Texts with a clear biblical focus
• Texts that are Christ-centered
• Texts that fit with lectionary readings
• New tunes that are inviting to sing and
  reflective of the text
• Hymns from around the world
• Approx. 100 hymn texts or tunes are
  ―new,‖ i.e., never included in any LCMS
  hymnal or supplement prior to LSB           24

                 Concerning ―Amen‖

• TLH is the only hymnal in the history of
  the LCMS to include an ―Amen‖ for
  every hymn
• The same two-chord progression for
  every ―Amen‖ tends to homogenize the
  hymn tunes

          Exploring the Hymns
                 Concerning ―Amen‖

• LSB includes ―Amens‖ only for hymns
  that have chant melodies (e.g., 384, 455)
  and for the Common Doxology (805)
• Congregations can choose to add
  ―Amens,‖ for example, at the conclusion
  of doxological stanzas (marked with a
  triangle; e.g., 344) or wherever else suits
  local custom
           Exploring the Hymns
              Melody-only, where appropriate

Approximately 20% of the hymns in the
Pew Edition include melody line only.
Reasons include:
• Some newer melodies are not suitable for
  singing in harmony (e.g., 671, 727, 806)
• Melody only makes more difficult tunes easier
  to sing (e.g., 607, 942, 954)
• Saves considerable space, allowing more
  hymns to be included
• Other location of hymn setting in Pew Edition
  is identified at bottom of page (e.g. 670)
         Exploring the Hymns
             Settings and Harmonizations

  expose members to what’s in LSB.

  congregation, helping them to see how
  carefully LSB has been prepared.
             Introducing LSB
              On the Sunday of first use

• Take five minutes before the service to
  walk the congregation through LSB;
  point out the numbering system.
• Start with a service the congregation
  knows, explaining any changes in a
  positive light.
• Choose only hymns that are familiar to
  the congregation.
             Introducing LSB
         Using LSB in coming months and years

• Make use of musical forces in
  congregation—choirs, soloists,
  instrumentalists, Sunday school/day

  mid-week school, council mtgs., etc.

          Some Funding Ideas

          Some Funding Ideas
• Chart progress of fundraising on narthex
• Dedicate hymnals once purchased
• Suggest that members donate copies for
  as many in their family who will use them
  in worship.
• Also suggest that they consider buying an
  equal number for their personal use in the
  home (either the Pew or Gift Edition).
