Thread Name: Lyr Req: Let All Things Now Living (hymn)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: lyrics to hymn 'All things Now Livin
I just posted the Esperanto version, Nun ĉio vivanta, in TTT-Himnaro Cigneta, and now you tell me I got the name wrong? ;-)
So who has the copyright on it? And who do they say the author is? And if it's "The Lutherans" can you be more specific (ELCA? Mo. Synod? Wis. Synod? Augsburg Fortress? etc.) The only hymnal I've found that credits the Lutherans (Chalice Hymnal, Disciples of Christ, 1995) still says Davis is the author. And the Esperanto translator, Adolf Burkhardt, is a (German) Lutheran pastor, and he says it's public domain and credits Davis.
