McGrath has it right. The original version of the tune was in French and dates from around 1642. It was then translated into Huron to help introduce members of that nation to Christianity.

The French lyrics are available on my relocated tunebook site.

The English version we recognize today is a relatively recent iteration, having been crafted in 1926 by Canadian poet J.E. Middleton.
