Gesangbuch zum gottesdienstlichen und häuslichen Gebrauch in Evangelischen Mennoniten-Gemeinden (Worms, 1856) is the hymnbook of the conference of South German Mennonites which was prepared with the cooperation of A. Knapp. A second edition followed in 1876. The third edition was revised and appeared with 575 hymns, both with and without four-part music (Ludwigshafen, 1910); a fourth revised edition appeared in 1950 at Ludwigshafen.

In 1873 the General Conference Mennonite Church of North America reprinted the songbook adding 22 songs and dropping the word "Evangelischen" in the title and the appendixes. In 1890 a considerably revised edition of this book was published under the title, Gesangbuch mit Noten, which experienced 15 editions (50,000 copies) between 1890 and 1936, when it was replaced by the Gesangbuch der Mennoniten (1942) and English-language hymnals.
