I was wondering if I was allowed to use the lyrics from old hymns. I would put my own music to them and if anyone asks, I would like the liberty of selling them. One of my friends said you can use it only if it's public or something.
“In my anguish I cried to the LORD, and he answered by setting me free. The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”

After so many years, literature is owned by the public, but I'm not sure how many years...
My uber smart/lawyer history teacher told us this. Thats why so many different publishers make the old Tom Sawyer books.

Research public domain. I'm not sure what the exact length of time is before something comes into the public domain.

Also, Bob Dylan did a lot of that kind of stuff--incorporating myths, legends, that kind of stuff--into his lyrics.
