The text of this hymn was written in 1680 by German Calvinist Joachim Neander (1650-1680). Neander set his music to the melody of "Lobe Den Herren" from the "Stralsund Gesangbuch" (Published in 1665. Stralsund is a german city with Gesangbuch simply being german for hymnal.) Catherine Winkworth then later translated this hymn to English in 1863. (1, 2). The original hymn words and music is available in SATB format here.
