LSB 856 Wrong Pic

You are here

The Lutheran Service Book #856 shows a picture of #857


If you mean this one, it is correct: two scans appear, the one with hymn 856 and the following page, because it has verse 5 on top of hymn 857.

If not, please post back.

This shows up correctly for editors who are logged in, but not for regular users. Both 856 and 857 are copyrighted by GIA and anyone is allowed to view them (but not print them) however, #857 was not marked as restricted, so it was able to be viewed. This is a bug which should be fixed soon.

for explanation.
