Let’s compile Lutheran hymn studies!! What more can we add?
Thus far, this is what I know about:
- LCMS worship Ministry has free Hymn of the Day Studies for every week in each lectionary, including the One Year and Three Year Series!!!
- Concordia Publishing House has Quick and Easy Studies on 600+ Hymns with some individual hymn studies available for purchase.
- Googling resulted in finding “Kantor’s Hymn Studies,” if you like a blogging approach, “Bible Studies on Hymns” by Rev. Dr. Rickert, and several hymn studies by Kristin Ehmen.
