TITLE: Jerusalem
Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 3; as recorded by Emerson, Lake and Palmer.  Your choir may differ.]

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

(D) / Bm - - G D - - G / D Bm - G - - D /
   / Bm - - F#m Bm - - F#m / Bm F#m E7 A - - - /

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark Satanic mills

/ Em - - Am Em - - - / G - - D7 G - - - / 
   / Em - A7 D - BmG / D G A7 D - - - /

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
