As an American, I didn't learn of the song "Jerusalem" until I first saw the film "Chariots of Fire" (which I love, by the way.) The song is from a poem by William Blake and the music by Hubert Parry. Of course, it is a very well known and loved song in England. (It is the one of the favorites of my in-laws.) The song was celebrated this year for its 100th anniversary. (The poem is much older, of course!) Some call it a hymn and some do not. Personally, I think it should be considered a hymn. I found a wonderful sermon for you and it says exactly the way I feel about this song! You may read it just here!
Hope all of you are doing well! I have quite a few things to tell you and also to ask you! Will be able to spend more time on the computer next week. Hope so anyway.
