Of the Sleep of Ulro! and of the passage through (from Jerusalem)

by William Blake


Original Language English

Of the Sleep of Ulro! and of the passage through
Eternal Death! and of the awakening to Eternal Life

This theme calls me in sleep night after night, & ev'ry morn
Awakes me at sun-rise, then I see the Saviour over me
Spreading his beams of love, & dictating the words of this mild song.

-- from The Complete Illuminated Books, by William Blake
