When Lutheran churches were first established in North America, the immigrants from Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Finland, and other non-English speaking countries retained services in their native languages. However, as the children and grandchildren of these immigrants began speaking English in their everyday lives and the various Lutheran denominations began uniting, many felt that the North American Lutheran churches needed a common English language liturgy and hymns. An earlier book called Culto Cristiano, a hymnal for Spanish speaking Lutherans, inspired the this movement. The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ...


The project that began publication of the LBW started in 1965 when the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod invited other North American Lutheran denominations to join it in work to a common service book. In addition to the LCMS, the Lutheran Church in America, American Lutheran Church, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Canada formed the Inter-Lutheran Commission on Worship to undertake this project. The commission conducted its work through questionaires, test programs, conferences, and dialogs. The LBW was finally published in 1978.
