Chimes of Comfort
A portion of the sales of this Charitable Chime benefits the Hospice Foundation of America, an organization that funds research of and educates the public and health care professionals about hospice care.
Our Chimes of Comfort plays the familiar, soothing tones heard in the opening measures of Amazing Grace. One of America's best loved hymns, Amazing Grace offers hope in times of difficulty and transition.
The hymn's 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.
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
