What's that song that has the lyrics to Jerusalem?

It has some of the lyrics to the hymn Jerusalem in it, but it's like by a rock band or something, it sounds like the Moody Blues or Yes or something, but I can't find it, and no it isn't the Sex Pistols.

Update:

Firstly, I have no clue where the second dude pulled their answer from, that has nothing to do with it. Secondly, no that's not even the right Jerusalem, It's the one from Chariot(s) of Fire, the movie, and is also known as And All The Earth Shall Own Him Lord, or at least one version is. They're all based off the original poem Jerusalem, and one of its versions has been known as a patriotic tune in the UK. And the band is slightly old, but not really, classic rock possibly, sounds like one of the English bands.

    The English band Emerson, Lake & Palmer recorded an adaptation of "Jerusalem" on their album "Brain Salad Surgery," released in 1973. My guess is that this is what you are looking for.
