HomeTitle; E67| THE SONG of LOS t192Home
SongLOS3.2; E67| I will sing you a song of Los. the Eternal Prophet:
SongLOS3.3; E67| He sung it to four harps at the tables of Eternity.
SongLOS3.4; E67| In heart-formed Africa.
SongLOS3.5; E67| Urizen faded! Ariston shudderd!
SongLOS3.6; E67| And thus the Song began
SongLOS3.7; E67| Adam stood in the garden of Eden:
SongLOS3.8; E67| And Noah on the mountains of Ararat;
SongLOS3.9; E67| They saw Urizen give his Laws to the Nations
SongLOS3.10; E67| By the hands of the children of Los.
SongLOS3.11; E67| Adam shudderd! Noah faded! black grew the sunny African
SongLOS3.12; E67| When Rintrah gave Abstract Philosophy to Brama in the East:
SongLOS3.13; E67| (Night spoke to the Cloud!
SongLOS3.14; E67| Lo these Human form'd spirits in smiling hipocrisy. War
SongLOS3.15; E67| Against one another; so let them War on; slaves to the eternal Elements)
SongLOS3.16; E67| Noah shrunk, beneath the waters;
SongLOS3.17; E67| Abram fled in fires from Chaldea;
SongLOS3.18; E67| Moses beheld upon Mount Sinai forms of dark delusion:
SongLOS3.21; E67| Times rolled on o'er all the sons of Har, time after time
SongLOS3.22; E67| Orc on Mount Atlas howld, chain'd down with the Chain of Jealousy
SongLOS3.23; E67| Then Oothoon hoverd over Judah & Jerusalem
SongLOS3.24; E67| And Jesus heard her voice (a man of sorrows) he recievd
SongLOS3.25; E67| A Gospel from wretched Theotormon.
SongLOS3.26; E67| The human race began to wither, for the healthy built
SongLOS3.27; E67| Secluded places, fearing the joys of Love
SongLOS3.28; E67| And the disease'd only propagated:
SongLOS3.29; E67| So Antamon call'd up Leutha from her valleys of delight:
SongLOS3.30; E67| And to Mahomet a loose Bible gave.
SongLOS3.31; E67| But in the North, to Odin, Sotha gave a Code of War,
SongLOS3.32; E67| Because of Diralada thinking to reclaim his joy.
SongLOS4.1; E67| These were the Churches: Hospitals: Castles: Palaces:
SongLOS4.2; E67| Like nets & gins & traps to catch the joys of Eternity
SongLOS4.3; E67| And all the rest a desart;
SongLOS4.4; E67| Till like a dream Eternity was obliterated & erased.
SongLOS4.5; E68| Since that dread day when Har and Heva fled.
SongLOS4.6; E68| Because their brethren & sisters liv'd in War & Lust;
SongLOS4.7; E68| And as they fled they shrunk
SongLOS4.8; E68| Into two narrow doleful forms:
SongLOS4.9; E68| Creeping in reptile flesh upon
SongLOS4.10; E68| The bosom of the ground:
SongLOS4.11; E68| And all the vast of Nature shrunk
SongLOS4.12; E68| Before their shrunken eyes.
SongLOS4.13; E68| Thus the terrible race of Los & Enitharmon gave
SongLOS4.14; E68| Laws & Religions to the sons of Har binding them more
SongLOS4.15; E68| And more to Earth: closing and restraining:
SongLOS4.16; E68| Till a Philosophy of Five Senses was complete
SongLOS4.17; E68| Urizen wept & gave it into the hands of Newton & Locke
SongLOS4.18; E68| Clouds roll heavy upon the Alps round Rousseau & Voltaire:
SongLOS4.19; E68| And on the mountains of Lebanon round the deceased Gods
SongLOS4.20; E68| Of Asia; & on the desarts of Africa round the Fallen Angels
SongLOS4.21; E68| The Guardian Prince of Albion burns in his nightly tent
SongLOS6.2; E68| The Kings of Asia heard
SongLOS6.3; E68| The howl rise up from Europe!
SongLOS6.4; E68| And each ran out from his Web;
SongLOS6.5; E68| From his ancient woven Den;
SongLOS6.6; E68| For the darkness of Asia was startled
SongLOS6.7; E68| At the thick-flaming, thought-creating fires of Orc.
SongLOS6.10; E68| Shall not the King call for Famine from the heath?
SongLOS6.11; E68| Nor the Priest, for Pestilence from the fen?
SongLOS6.12; E68| To restrain! to dismay! to thin!
SongLOS6.13; E68| The inhabitants of mountain and plain;
SongLOS6.14; E68| In the day, of full-feeding prosperity;
SongLOS6.15; E68| And the night of delicious songs.
SongLOS7.1; E69| To cut off the bread from the city,
SongLOS7.2; E69| That the remnant may learn to obey.
SongLOS7.3; E69| That the pride of the heart may fail;
SongLOS7.4; E69| That the lust of the eyes may be quench'd:
SongLOS7.5; E69| That the delicate ear in its infancy
SongLOS7.9; E69| Urizen heard them cry!
SongLOS7.10; E69| And his shudd'ring waving wings
SongLOS7.11; E69| Went enormous above the red flames
SongLOS7.12; E69| Drawing clouds of despair thro' the heavens
SongLOS7.13; E69| Of Europe as he went:
SongLOS7.14; E69| And his Books of brass iron & gold
SongLOS7.15; E69| Melted over the land as he flew,
SongLOS7.26; E69| Orc raging in European darkness
SongLOS7.27; E69| Arose like a pillar of fire above the Alps
SongLOS7.28; E69| Like a serpent of fiery flame!
SongLOS7.29; E69| The sullen Earth
SongLOS7.30; E69| Shrunk!
SongLOS7.31; E69| Forth from the dead dust rattling bones to bones
SongLOS7.32; E69| Join: shaking convuls'd the shivring clay breathes
SongLOS7.33; E69| And all flesh naked stands: Fathers and Friends;
SongLOS7.34; E69| Mothers & Infants; Kings & Warriors:
SongLOS7.35; E69| The Grave shrieks with delight, & shakes
SongLOS7.36; E69| Her hollow womb, & clasps the solid stem:
SongLOS7.37; E69| Her bosom swells with wild desire:
SongLOS7.38; E69| And milk & blood & glandous wine
