Van Dyke graduated from Princeton University (1873) and Princeton Theological Seminary (1877), and was professor of English literature at the University for 24 years (1899 - 1923). He chaired the committee that wrote the first Presbyterian printed liturgy in 1906, was appointed by President Wilson as Minister to the Netherlands and Luxembourg in 1913, and was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He wrote several volumes of poetry, some of which were hymns, including "Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee" to be sung to Beethoven's Ode to Joy.
