Originally I beautiful poem titled “And did those Feet in Ancient Times” by William Blake. It was later set to music in the 20th century by Sir Hubert Parry and was retitled Jerusalem.
I was initially inspired by hearing Jacob Colliers beautiful arrangement, but for ages struggled to find my own unique angle as I find it very hard to arrange something has has been done already to high standard.
I hope you find my choice of visuals appropriate as I really wanted to tell a story as the message of this hymn is routed in the idea of taking responsibility for the changes in society and more importantly respecting the land you live on.

Lyrics:
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 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 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.
