About Deilig er jorden | Arr. Inger Elise Reitan
Deilig er jorden (Fairest Lord Jesus), is a Christian hymn. The tune, originally a Silesian folk song, and the German text were printed for the first time in 1842 by August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben and Ernst Richter under the name Schönster Herr Jesu.
In 1850 the Danish hymnwriter B. S. Ingemann wrote Dejlig Er Jorden, which he set to the same melody.
