William Blake is a painter and poet that has inspired generations of artists over the last couple hundred years and there are phrases of his that accompany me every day. So I decided to collect the verses that touched me the most and assemble them all into a tribute song.

A9 Dmaj7
To see a world in a grain of sand,
A9 Dmaj7
And a heaven in a wild flower,
A9 Dmaj7
To hold Infinity in the palm of the hand
Emaj7 Amaj7
and Eternity in an hour,

William Blake, weary of Time,
Like a sunflower, counting the steps of the sun,
Ever seeking that sweet, golden clime,
Where the traveler’s journey is done,

A9 Em9
Rose, thou art sick,
A9 Em9
The invisible worm that flies through the night sky
A9
has found your bed of crimson joy,
Em9 A9
And with his dark, secret love,
Em9
with his dark secret love,
G D D7
Does you life destroy,

A9
Every morn and every night,
Dmaj7
some are born to sweet delight,
A9
Every night and every morn
Em9 A9
Some are to darkness born,
A9
Some are born to sweet delight,
Em9 G D D7
Others are born to endless night,

A9
Hold onto a joy
Em9
and the winged life you destroy,
A9 Dnaj7
But kiss a joy as it flies
Emaj7 Amaj7
and live in Eternity’s sunrise.
Emaj7 Amaj7
Because Eternity’s in love with the Productions of Time.
