a famous poem (1804) by William Blake, later set to music by Hubert Parry (1848-1918). It expresses the hope for a future Christian society in ‘England's green and pleasant land’ to replace the horrors of ‘the dark Satanic mills’ of the Industrial Revolution. It is traditionally sung at the Last Night of the Proms as well as by Women's Institutes and in churches.
