Church spire viewed from Latymer Upper School

Sadly this is not the Chapel of the Resurrection. This is in fact the spire of Rivercourt Methodist Church as seen from the grounds of Latymer Upper School. I am sure that the Methodists who attend this church are fond of hymn singing!

Hymns of glory, songs of praise,
Father, unto thee we raise;
Jesus, glory unto thee,
Ever with the Spirit be.

NB I am in Belfast for a couple of days - hence this 'early' posting! Normal service on Sunday.

I like the link between the hymn and the photos. Isn't that music school going to be very warm with all that glass?

I hope the planners thought of that rather important point!

A nice photo - and a splendid Wesley hymn to look forward to tomorrow!

What a wonderful hymn. Like Issac Watts, James Montgomery could write powefully and with economy. The tune, Northampton, is excellent

Yes, I am very fond of the tune Northampton. I also like Ratisbon - the usual tune to 'Christ, whose glory fills the skies'. A good hymn really requires good words and a good tune.
