    Comments:  Although I personally am an Independent Baptist, I knew ALOT of the songs at this site!   This is the MAIN SITE page where you can go to the The Lutheran Hymnal in Midi with Lyrics by scrolling down and clicking on that link or select from a list of other options.    Once you get to the Lutheran Hymnal site,  click on any of the letters to biring up a list of hymns.    The really NEAT thing about this site is that you can play the music and at the same time link to the lyrics to sing-along!     A good way for kids to learn the hymns of the faith.   It seems to require the CRESCENDO plug-in but that is free and easy to get on the WEB.
