Church of St Gwenfaen, Rhoscolyn, Anglesey
east wall of the chancel (window number: I)

The text running across the upper part of the window is from Psalm 107: 23–4: (beneath angel with anchor) 'They that go down to the sea in ships'; (beneath Christ on the waters) 'These men see the works of the Lord'; (beneath angel with nets) 'and His wonders in the deep.' Texts beneath the lower scenes: 'He taught the people out of the ship' (Luke 5:3), 'It is I be not afraid' (Matthew 14:27, Mark 6:50, John 6:20), 'Bring of the fish which you have now caught' (John 21:10).
