Jerusalem, God of our fathers, Let us with a gladsome mind: many of our best-loved hymns are based on the words of famous British poets such as Cowper, Dryden, Kipling and Blake (whom Sir John Betjeman calls ‘our greatest religious poet’). This colourfully illustrated anthology presents the texts of 65 hymns and seven carols, with an appendix highlighting where these familiar versions differ from the original poems. Based on Hymns as Poetry (1980).
