Yale Center for British Art Jerusalem Plate 62
In this passage in Milton we read of Albion as a giant body stretching over the British landscape. He is attempting to rise from his dreadful sleep on the Couch of Death. The anguish he experienced is portrayed in the face of Albion on plate 62 of Jerusalem. Blake includes a small figure between Albion's feet to indicate the scale of the forces incorporated in Albion - his symbol of Man.
Milton, Plate 39  (E 140) "Awake Albion awake! reclaim thy Reasoning Spectre. Subdue Him to the Divine Mercy, Cast him down into the Lake Of Los, that ever burneth with fire, ever & ever Amen! Let the Four Zoa's awake from Slumbers of Six Thousand Years Then loud the Furnaces of Los were heard! & seen as Seven heavens Stretching from south to north over the mountains of Albion" Milton, Plate 39  "Then Albion rose up in the Night of Beulah on his Couch Of dread repose seen by the visionary eye; his face is toward The east, toward Jerusalems Gates: groaning he sat above His rocks. London & Bath & Legions & Edinburgh Are the four pillars of his Throne; his left foot near London Covers the shades of Tyburn: his instep from Windsor To Primrose Hill stretching to Highgate & Holloway London is between his knees: its basements fourfold His right foot stretches to the sea on Dover cliffs, his heel On Canterburys ruins; his right hand covers lofty Wales His left Scotland; his bosom girt with gold involves York, Edinburgh, Durham & Carlisle & on the front Bath, Oxford, Cambridge Norwich; his right elbow Leans on the Rocks of Erins Land, Ireland ancient nation[,] His head bends over London: he sees his embodied Spectre Trembling before him with exceeding great trembling & fear He views Jerusalem & Babylon, his tears flow down He movd his right foot to Cornwall, his left to the Rocks of Bognor He strove to rise to walk into the Deep. but strength failing Forbad & down with dreadful groans he sunk upon his Couch In moony Beulah. Los his strong Guard walks round beneath the Moon
 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
First Corinthians 12
 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
