JERUSALEM

And did those feet in ancient time

Así comienza el poema de William Blake dedicado a Milton y el Himno Ingles Jerusalem, que es una de la melodías más representativas de Inglaterra junto a God save the Queen y Land of Hope and Glory.
El compositor inglés Hubert Parry creo en 1916 la partitura que Emerson Lake and Palmer versionaron en su cuarto álbum de 1973 Brain Salad Surgery con la memorable portada de H.R.Giger.



And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green
And was the Holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these 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
'Til we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land
