: : 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).

Dear Connie Frye,
Check the Copyright notice in the book you are using. If it is before 1923, according to the Copyright Office, that should be safe. If there is no notice. There may be safety until you are notified, that there is a copyrighright.
