Amazing Grace® Chime - Medium, Bronze
This chime is tuned to the inspiring tones heard in the opening measures of Amazing Grace, one of America's best loved and most widely known hymns. The lyrics were written by Englishman John Newton in the late 18th century. As a young man on board a merchant ship, Newton underwent a spiritual awakening while caught in a deadly storm at sea. This was the beginning of a journey that would lead the one-time slave trader to become a vocal abolitionist, and transform a man without conviction into one of unshakable faith. It has played an important role in drug and alcohol recovery, the Civil War, the Civil Rights Movement and 9/11. Newton's message of hope and redemption from over 200 years ago resonates with the same power today in our Amazing Grace Chime.
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
I love when the wind blows so I can hear the lovely soothing sound they make.
Just received today it already hanging outside and sounds wonderful
It presently hangs on our wrap around porch and is protected from the weather. We enjoy the tones and can even hear it inside the house. I intend to purchase another as a housewarming gift.
I own several of Woodstock chimes and now buy them for gifts! This one was for a special friend to celebrate her 70th birthday! I honestly prefer the small chimes as the sound is small and ever so sweet!
I am involved in a support group and these wind chimes make the perfect gift for the 1 year anniversary of a passing. They beautiful chimes play the first few notes of Amazing Grace each time the wind blows and allows the family to remember their loved one.
