: : How do I find out if certain hymns are copywrited and/or still in publication? I don't want the music, just the words, (i.e. the original poem).
Find a copyrighted book copyrighted before 1923 with the hymn in it and you are safe. It is likely that a hymn is from an ancient source and in the public domain.
