Heyr Himna Smidur- A Classic Christian Hymn from Iceland

Here is a set of videos showcasing a hauntingly beautiful hymn from Iceland titled: Heyr Himna Smidur (Hear O Smith of the Heavens). It was composed in the 12th Century A.D. by Kolbeinn Tumason who was an Icelandic chieftain. I’ve included a video with an English translation as well as a rendition of the hymn by Eivor Palsdottir (a singer from the Faroe Islands) and Frostrosir (a group of musicians in Iceland). I hope that it’ll inspire in us a deeper love for our Lord Jesus Christ and God/G-d our Heavenly Creator. May all Glory be given to Christ Jesus who reigns over all Nations and Creation! Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be unto ages of ages. Amen!
