Precise situation is this: there's an old Christian song (1870's) for which there are a couple popular lyric versions. I would like, if possible, to determine which one is the original.
Several things to note:
- It's not about a classic work
- It's not about a book
... on the other hand ...
- It is about a poem (literary form)
- It is about a well known Christian song
Should I hold my peace, or are such questions sufficiently within the scope of this site?
