A holiday greeting

Happy St. Joseph of Arimathea Day, everyone! In his honor, here is the classic hymn "And did those feet in ancient time." This hymn is appropriate for this day because the William Blake poem on which it based was inspired by a legend, popular during the Romantic period, that as a child, Jesus accompanied St. J of A on a trip to England and visited Glastonbury.



Those of you who are not as thoroughly Anglo-Saxon as I may prefer to read this poem today instead.
