Overture

Jerusalem


And did those feet in ancient time;
Walk upon England's mountain green?
And was the Holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?
And did thy countenance divine;
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem build’d here;
Among those dark satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!
I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.
