The Cherubs at Gloria Dei.

This decorative carving hangs beneath the organ loft. According to tradition, this carving was among the artifacts moved from the log church at Tinicum to the new Gloria Dei Church in 1699-1700. The carving is supposed to have come from Sweden in 1642. The inscriptions on the open Bible below the cherubs are in Swedish and read (on the left) "The people who wander in the darkness have seen a great light" and (on the right) "Glory to God in the Highest."
