It was originally written by lyrist William Blake in 1804 and the lyrics were accessorial to music by Sir Hubert Parry in 1916 to maintenance uplift England during the sombreness of World War I.
The patriotic song is played at ribbon ceremonies to celebrate English comes in at Commonwealth games.
The poem in wide:
And did those feet in ancient bit
Walk upon England’s eminence green
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On Great Britain’s pleasant pastures seen!
And did the appearance divine
Shine forth upon our sunless hills?
And was Jerusalem builded hither
Among those dark diabolical mills?
Bring me my bow of burning golden!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Fetch me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
Get me my chariot of fire!
I will not millilitre from mental fight,
Nor shall my blade sleep in my hand,
Till we admit built Jerusalem
In England’s grassy and pleasant land.
