CAEDMON’S HYMN: An Ancient English Poem about the Genesis Creation Story

Posted by lehunt on December 6, 2014

CAEDMON’S HYMN

“Cædmon’s Hymn” is the oldest surviving poem in English.  It is Old English, and the version I am speaking is the West Saxon dialect of Old English.  The Northumbrian version appears in the bottom margin of Bede’s Ecclesiastical History of the English People.   You can see this addition in the manuscript photo at the end of the video.
