I'm currently inputting the hymns from the North American (German) Baptist 1956 North American Hymnal, which I was astounded to discover never made it into DNAH, and that led me to look at Moment's to my mind oddly worded "Men and Children Everywhere" (seems to go out of its way to leave out the womenfolk!), and in the course of deciding what the tune is officially to be called I noticed that the caption beneath the only page scan for the hymn (screenshot) says it's from "The Hymnal (1950)", which I thought must be a typo for 1940, but on further investigation turns out to be from the 1933 Presbyterian book. I am at a loss as to how to correct this, or, if it is not an error, then to explain it.


Although the copyright date for this hymnal is 1933, the page scans and information come from the hymnal published in 1950 (it was actually printed in 1962). We do not have the ability to enter both the publication date and the copyright date. Since the hymnal published in 1950 may have updated or corrected material, the publication date should be used rather than the copyright date.
