The Cry for Justice: An Anthology of the Literature of Social Protest.  1915.
The Prophetic Book “Milton”

By William Blake

(English poet and painter of strange and terrible visions. 1757–1827)
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        5
  Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
  Among these dark Satanic mills?
Bring me my bow of burning gold!
  Bring me my arrows of desire!        10
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        15
  In England’s green and pleasant land.
