technique: stained glass
size: 43 cm (width of each light)
firm/studio: C.E. Kempe & Co Ltd

Church of St Augustine, Rumney, Cardiff
south wall of the sanctuary

The Kempe and Tower mark is included in the lower left-hand light.

Texts over the outer lights: 'I have redeemed thee ... I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine' (Isaiah 43:1).

Dedication: 'In loving recollection of a great friend and in thankfulness to God for the life of James Edward Harris, fourteen brothers and sisters dedicate this and the adjoining window. A.D. 1915.'

The window is a variant of the common theme of Christ blessing children brought to him by their mothers (Matthew 19:13-15; Mark 10:13-16; Luke 18:15-17). In this composition, children are brought to him by angels.
