Project Description

Theme: KING DAVID

Scripture: “The Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David.” (Revelation 5:5); “The Lord is my Shepherd.” (Psalms 23:1) “O come, let us sing to the lord.” (Psalms 95:1)

Features: Depicts the youth David, the Old Testament hero who became king of his people. The lion at the top of the window is a symbol of kingliness and royal power. David was author of many of the Psalms, including the 23rd Psalms, whose opening words appear on the window: “The Lord is my Shepherd.” The sheep beside David recalls the pastoral relationship (verse 1). They rest together in “green pastures” (verse 2), “Beside still waters” (verse 3). David holds the “staff” (verse 4) of the Lord’s protective companionship through every circumstance of life, even “the valley of the shadow of death.” In David’s hand is also a lyre, because the Psalms are songs and David was a lover of music. The bottom of the window depicts a contemporary youth choir joining in the chorus of the ages.

Dedication: “To Youth and Music in the Church, by Barry’s classmates, parents, relatives and friends.” In memory of Barry Constable.
