This morning while watching the Royal Wedding..........at approximately 5:45AM CDT, Westminster Abbey comes to life with THE HYMN...........you can find it in the official wedding program at this link :


You know it as JERUSALUM from Emerson, Lake and Palmer (BS Sugery).

A beautiful piece............lyrics below :

And did those feet in ancient time,
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the Holy Lamb of God
on England's pleasant pastures seen?

And did the Countenance Divine,
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!
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
Til we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.

Yeah, those Royals like their prog. :D

I wasn't awake to watch it though. I figured it would end with them both saying "I do" and being declared Husband and Wife...not much of a cliff-hanger if you ask me.

It was a beautiful yet conventional Christian ceremony...........Westminster Abbey is amazingly and gothicly gorgeous.
One of the highlights was when Kate and her Father made it up to the alter to join William, the Prince leaned past his bride and said something to his new Father - in - Law.....I was watching NBC and they had employed lip-readers for just such occasion.

The words William spoke were as follows :

Welcome to our little family affair.
