Joy and gladness! (Düring)
The author of this text, the Rev. George Washington Bethune, D.D. (1805-1862), was a prominent Dutch Reformed Pastor. The composer of the tune, Charles A. A. Düring, was born in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1854, and died in New York some time after 1920. He was a generous donor of music and other materials to several New York institutions, and also held patents for a waterproof cement for leather and an improved form of piano stool.
