Jerusalem Summary

By William Blake

Jerusalem Summary

The poem opens with the speaker wondering whether Jesus once came to England, whether the Lamb of God was seen, and whether he brought any of his famous divine light with him. The speaker also then wonders if Jerusalem was once built in England, before deciding to ask for his bow and arrow, his spear, and his chariot of fire. He will continue his "Mental Fight," his sword will sleep in his hands, and together with some amigos, he will build Jerusalem in England again.
