Henry van Dyke (1852-1933) was an American clergyman, educator, and author. He graduated from Princeton in 1873, and from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1874. He was pastor of the Brick Presbyterian Church, New York City (1883-99), professor of English literature at Princeton (1899-1923), and U.S. minister to the Netherlands (1913-16). As President Wilson's ambassador to the Netherlands from 1913, Van Dyke was a first-hand witness to the outbreak of World War I and its progress, and was a key player in the President's diplomatic efforts to keep the U.S. out of the conflict. He wrote the lyrics to the popular hymn, "Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee" (1907), sung to the tune of Beethoven's "Ode to Joy". This is a collection of his short stories on various religious themes that describe graphically the human journey in its search for happiness. Among his popular inspirational writings are the two Christmas stories, The Other Wise Man (1896) and The First Christmas Tree (1897)

In the consumerism-addled hustle and bustle of the typical twenty-first century Christmas, it can be difficult to find time to reflect on the true significance of the season.

23 editions published between 1903 and 2018 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The desire of happiness, beyond all doubt, is a natural desire. It is the law of life itself that every being seeks and strives toward the perfection of its kind, the realization of its own specific ideal in form and function, and a true harmony with its environment. Every drop of sap in the tree flows toward foliage and fruit. Every drop of blood in the bird beats toward flight and song. In a conscious being this movement toward perfection must take a conscious form. This conscious form is happiness, - the satisfaction of the vital impulse, - the rhythm of the inward life, - the melody of a
