lhs= Lutheran hymnal with supplement, available from Lutheran Church of Australia, any congregation of the Lutheran Church of Australia or via
TIS=Together in Song, Australian hymn book II, an ecumenical hymn book produced in cooperation with Anglican, Churches of Christ, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and Uniting churches in Australia and published by Harper Collins Religious. So it is available from many congregations associated with the above denominations or via
TLH=The Lutheran Hymnal 1941

In the future i will endeavour to add more hymns and songs, (plus also watch out for a more contemporary selection) and hymn numbers from other hymns books produced elsewhere (eg. USA), plus hopefully links to basic tunes... (if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to leave them as comments below)
