Joy

W7
“Joy”

Psalms 150; Colossians 3:16; Romans 5:1-2 This window is inspired by Charles Wesley, who wrote many of the most traditional Methodist hymns. The musical score shows the first notes to the hymn “O For A Thousand Tongues to Sing,” and traditional instruments of praise such as the harp and the trumpet also are shown. The birds at the top of the display represent the resurrection. Praise and Joy rang through the Methodists meetings. They all sang! Sharing lyrics and familiar tunes, they sang of the burden of sins being lifted. They told of new peace, God’s love and shared insights for living. Charles Wesley, John Wesley’s brother, was an especially big fan of incorporating music in his worship services, which is still reflected in today’s church through lively words and lilting melodies.
