Beneath his depiction of The Christ-Child riding on a Lamb, this extract from William Blake’s illuminated book, Jerusalem The Emanation of The Giant Albion, seems appropriate:

“Prepare the furniture, O Lambeth, in thy pitying looms!
The curtains, woven tears and sighs, wrought into lovely forms
For Comfort; there the secret furniture of Jerusalem’s chamber

Is wrought. Lambeth! the Bride, the Lamb’s Wife loveth thee;
Thou art one with her, and knowest not of Self in thy supreme joy.
Go on, Builders in hope! tho’ Jerusalem wanders far away
Without the Gate of Los, among the dark Satanic wheels.”
