Hi Q: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9r81ZP...

This is the only hymn that I like. (I admit that I dont know many.)

If you have seen "Calendar Girls", you will recognize Jerusalem from the Women's Institute meetings that Helen Mirren and Julie Walters loved to disrupt.

The hymn is based on a poem by William Blake.

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 those dark Satanic mills

Bring me my bow of burning gold
Bring me my arrows of desire
Bring me my spears 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
'Til we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land
