Evangelisches Gesangbuch (Protestant hymnal, literally: Protestant song book, EG) is the current hymnal of German language congregations in Germany, Alsace and Lorraine, Austria, and Luxembourg, which was introduced from 1993 and 1996, succeeding the Evangelisches Kirchengesangbuch (EKG). It appears in 14 different regional editions, which add regional hymns to the 535 hymns common for all editions.

More generally, it was the name of many Protestant hymnals in history.
