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?
