Wikipedia says that Isaac baker Woodbury "was a 19th-century composer and publisher of church music, most famous for publishing The Dulcimer: or the New York Collection of Sacred Music, one of the best-known collections of Christian hymns of the era. Born in Beverly, Massachusetts, his best-known hymn tunes include Siloam and Esmonton. He also published the American Monthly Musical Review. This number is actually based on a Seneca Indian myth of a bird released over the grave of a dead maiden who then carries her soul to heaven. I guess that this is not so much a hymn as hymn-like.
