First Line: O it is joy in one to meet
Author: Richard Mant


O it is joy in one to meet. Bishop B. Mant. [Divine Worship.] In his Ancient Hymns, Ac, 1837, p. 89, is given an original "Hymn commemorative of the pleasure of Social Worship," in 6 stanzas of 4 lines, beginning, "Glad is thy sound, O Sabbath bell" (edition 1871, p. 153). From this sts. ii.-v. were taken, slightly altered, and given in Beecher's Plymouth Collection, 1855, No. 709, as, "O, it is joy in one to meet." In the Songs for the Sanctuary, N. Y., 1865, the same stanzas are given as "O, it is joy for those to meet." The use of both arrangements is limited. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
