1885 Laudis Corona, "With Wondering Awe"

There's a Christmas song, "With Wondering Awe", that I have only found online and in the LDS hymnal, which credits it anonymously to "Laudis Corona", Boston, 1885. Anybody know anything about it, either about the song's authorship/provenance or about the collection. The tune is named for the book source. Here's the text:

With wondering awe the wise men saw
The star in heaven springing,
And with delight, in peaceful night,
They heard the angels singing:

Hosanna, hosanna! Hosanna to his name!

By light of star they traveled far
To seek the lowly manger,
A humble bed wherein was laid
The wondrous little Stranger.

Hosanna, hosanna! Hosanna to his name!

And still is found, the world around,
The old and hallowed story,
And still is sung in every tongue
The angels' song of glory:

Hosanna, hosanna! Hosanna to his name!

The heavenly star its rays afar
On every land is throwing,
And shall not cease till holy peace
In all the earth is growing.

Hosanna, hosanna! Hosanna to his name!
