Obrien and Bashir drunk

O'Brien and Bashir sing Jerusalem

Jerusalem was an English Human hymn, adapted from a poem called "And did those feet in ancient time" by William Blake. The hymn was often used as an unofficial anthem for the nation-state of England during the 20th and 21st centuries, especially for sporting events.

In 2371, while inebriated, Julian Bashir and Miles O'Brien sang the last five lines of the song (probably having previously sung the beginning), then started again at the beginning a short time later, singing the first two lines. (DS9: "Explorers")

O'Brien recalled singing Jerusalem with Bashir shortly before leaving Deep Space 9 for Earth and his new post at Starfleet Academy after the end of the Dominion War. (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")

Lyrics

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,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England’s green and pleasant Land.
